Whatever the medium, the Rev Richard Coles broadcasts a message with essential wit, and is always interesting and thought-provoking.
A multi-instrumentalist who partnered Jimmy Somerville in the 1980s band The Communards - achieving three Top Ten hits, including the biggest selling hit of 1986 Don't Leave Me This Way - Richard subsequently left the pop world to train for a priesthood in the Church of England.
He is probably best known as the regular host of BBC Radio 4's Saturday Live programme and from Strictly Come Dancing. He appears regularly on Newsnight and QI and Have I Got News For You, where his quick and inventive verbal humour is always to the fore.
