This is Your Life - Selwyn Toogood

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1985

After decades as broadcasting's leading MC, Selwyn Toogood was on the receiving end in 1985 when he was This Is Your Life's guest of honour. Bob Parker hosts the former host of It's In the Bag, Beauty and the Beast and innumerable quiz shows. Friends paying tribute to Toogood include former "quiz kid" and future Speaker of the House, Jonathan Hunt MP, and former Bag hostesses Tineke Stephenson (née Bouchier) and Sue Scott. Also sending greetings are several stars from Coronation Street.

What should she do, customers – the money or the bag? By hokey!
– Selwyn Toogood, on It's in the Bag
