After a couple had been made, the two contestants were placed back-to-back while Hardwick read a description of the winning player to the Picker; the contestants were then turned around to meet each other for the first time, and their trip and prizes were described to them by the announcer.Two games were played per show, first with a woman picking from 50 single men, then with a man picking from 50 single women."Naomi must have forgiven me because after that we saw each other most weekends when I visited dad," recalls Richard, 27."We'd play around the house or go rollerskating, if our parents let us. "To this day I still don't know what happened or how Peter Parker became Spiderman. In fact, meeting Naomi for the first time couldn't have come at a worse moment. I was hopping up and down dying to get back inside but instead I had to be polite.The three finalists started on the back step, and were asked a series of two-choice questions.Each time a contestant's answer matched the Picker's, the player advanced one space on the walkway (occasionally, a question might be worth two steps); the first player to make it to the circle on which the Picker was sitting won a date with the Picker.
Standing on the step was Naomi Campbell, flushed with excitement. Naomi, stick thin and with her hair scraped back in a ponytail, was a far from glamorous 12.Besides the hosts, the show also had mascot characters.The most prominent character was a scruffy, cigar-smoking cupid known as "Bob the Angel", who would sometimes appear in a series of vignettes with Hardwick and Mc Carthy. " Although this sounds like something out of the average male's wildest fantasy, Richard wasn't impressed. It had just got to the moment where Peter Parker turns into Spiderman.The year was 1982 and Richard - whose own comedy series launches this week on Channel 4 - had just become the future supermodel's stepbrother as his dad Cliff tied the knot with Naomi's mum Valerie, herself a model.
