Article excerpt

TV PRESENTER Rick Edwards is hard to pigeon-hole. He's spanned a variety of roles over the years that have involved him in the worlds of sport, politics and game shows, and now he's host of BBC daytime quiz show, !mpossible, as well as the end-of-show presenter for Channel 4's Made In Chelsea.

Ever since I was a kid, I've been interested in clothes and fashion and I like to dress well, but I go for a 'classic' look - wild, trendy things look odd on me.

How do you look after your health and wellbeing? I LOVE sport and I'm hugely competitive. My best friend and I challenge each other be the best at football, bowling, badminton etc. We also play snooker and recently took part in an international backgammon tournament.

I'm pretty fit, although, because I'm 6' 5" have a bit of an irritable lower spine, so I go to an osteopath regularly to keep it stable. …
