Eamonn Holmes is what I’m sure is seen as a ‘good safe pair of hands’ when it comes to presenting, and he’s been a bit of a jack of all presenting trades in his time. In terms of quizzes, he put in a five year stint as presenter of the BBC’s National Lottery Jet Set, which was a pretty standard lottery quiz, inoffensive enough in its own right. His latest offering is Gift Wrapped, one of two new shows keeping the 5 pm slot warm until the Chase returns. Well, if you read my previous review, you’ll know that I didn’t like the other one, The 21st Question. Would this one fare any better?
The show is presented by Eamonn and Ruth Langsford, who are of course husband and wife. That’s important to the whole idea of the show, since the contestants are three engaged couples.
