Find out more about our host Adrian Chiles and watch some of his classic highlights.
Watch the video of Adrian behaving extremely cheerily above.
Adrian was born in Birmingham in 1967 but was raised in Hagley, 11 miles west of the city.
His life has been occasionally enhanced but more often blighted by West Bromwich Albion who he's followed doggedly since he was seven.
After graduating with a degree in English Literature from the University of London he broke his leg playing football, allowing him a good sixth months to loll around working out what to do with his life.
The only interesting thing that happened to him in this time was an invitation to be interviewed for a position with MI5. He doesn't know why they picked on him but he does know that, having interviewed him, the decision to reject him was certainly the right one.
For want of anything better to do he enrolled on a journalism course in Cardiff which led to a three week stint on work experience with the BBC in the Business Programmes department. Incredibly, they kept him on as a researcher and before long someone saw fit to give him a chance as a presenter. He started on Radio 4 presenting the Financial World Tonight and moved on to Radio 5 Live for whom he worked for many years.

See Adrian in some of the shows he has worked on above.
His work on radio led to him presenting BBC2 new daily business show Working Lunch. This he worked on for 13 years as well as various other series, most notably the Apprentice spin-off 'You're Fired!'
Adrian became the host of Match of the Day 2 when the BBC won back the rights to the Premier League. He was also a member of the BBC's teams at the 2006 World Cup European Championships two years later. In 2008 he hosted the daily morning coverage of the Beijing Olympics.
Watch Adrian in the best bits from The One Show above.
In 2007 he co-presented the pilot for a new early-evening magazine programme, The One Show. Despite a marked absence of critical praise the show was commissioned and Adrian gave up Working Lunch to host it.
Watch some of Adrian's One show highlights, including:
It was on a One show programme, that Adrian also broke the World Record for most number of kisses received in 60 seconds. With help from the production team he received a whopping 78 kisses. This remains the sum total of kisses Adrian's received in his time on the show.
In 2004 Adrian had a cameo in the film Sex Lives of the Potato Men, appearing as the host of a sex party.
While guest hosting BBC One's Have I Got News for You in 2007 Adrian revealed that he is frequently mistaken for the presenter and survival expert Ray Mears. And Benny Hill, obviously.
According to a study by a media agency, Chiles was the most-watched presenter on British television in 2008, with a cumulative audience of over 1 billion. He dismisses this as quite ludicrous but is privately quite happy for everyone to carry on believing it.
