Angus DeaytonAngus Deayton
Gordon Angus Deayton was a student at Oxford. He joined in a revue in Edinburgh called You'll Have Had Your Tea By Now, which evolved into the Radio Four comedy series Radio Active. This in turn became KYTV on the box.

KYTV was a spoof satellite TV show, which set a comedy precedent for The Day Today.

Next came the role of Victor Meldrew's long-suffering next door neighbour in One Foot In The Grave.

Shortly after this came the show that really made him famous. Sandy Toksvig and Angus Deayton were short-listed to host a new panel show called Have I Got News For You. The choice was made and Angus became the sarky one in the middle.

Since his tenure as host of HIGNFY ended in 2002 Angus can be found hosting one-off specials such as Before They Were Famous and TV Hell.
