This gave Nick time to reflect and has made the choice to leave Countdown behind for good.
Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, Nick said he would be on Countdown ‘well into 2021’.
He wrote: ‘Delighted to be back in the Countdown studio after another enforced lockdown, BUT this latest lockdown has given me an opportunity to consider my future life.
‘I’ve decided it’s a good time to step down at the end of my contract in the New Year.
‘As someone in his 77th year,who will be in his 10th year hosting the great British institution that is Countdown, I think it’s time to smell the flowers and get a dog.’Credit: Original article published here.
