FORMER Butlins redcoat
William G Stewart, who found
fame presenting the cult television
quiz show 15 To 1, died
yesterday at 84.
He hosted and produced the
Channel 4 show for 15 years from

15 To 1, but took the job himself
after failing to find anyone he

to be matey and chatty with
contestants, his stern presenting
style made him a
favourite with viewers
