Through the Keyhole Classic TV Show
Join David Frost and Loyd Grossman as they ask "Who lives in a house like this?" The private lives of the rich and famous are examined in this fly on the wall panel game.
Through the Keyhole Fan Tributes33 margaret haddon from birmingham: con cluskey of the Bachelors in 2002, can l get a copy as l would love to re-live this moment and l do not mind paying for it, it would make me very happy if l could get a copy
32 Paul Bulmer from Cottingham: Has Eartha Kitt's home ever appeared on Through the Keyhole? If not, I'm sure she'll be game. We recently saw her in New York she was in a play and she looked sensational.
31 Bob Jodrell from Wetwang, East Yorkshire: I too am sorry that Lloyd is leaving, and can only hope the cull does not extend to lovely Toyah Wilcox, a regular on the celebrity sleuthing panel. I have an ear for stimulating voices and Ms Wilcox’s lisped deductions have given me great pleasure over the years.
30 Norris Cole from North West: I should follow up my harsh words with a suggestion. TTKH could use someone lively like Dale Winton. Or Eimonn Holmes. Just a thought.
29 Norris Cole from North West: Despite my above praise for the technically talented broadcaster of cutting edge daytime TV and devotion to pasta sauces, a revamp of the show is in order to restore it to its former glory. Start with pensioning off Sandi who knowone remembers unless they saw her as "Ethel" in number 73 (not good memories". May TTKH run and run but move with the times too. Love to allxx
28 Norris Cole from North West: TTKH as we oft called the show in our house, has given us hours of supremely interesting and amusing entertainment over the years, not to mention the subtle but everpresent 'tension' between LLoyd and Sir David. Sadly it has become dated and it Lloyd is wise to move on now. Not to say we wont miss him! Over to you...
27 Johnny Pemberton from Douglas, Isle of Man: What was really good about the programme was that Lloyd and David where on the programme at the same time, but never appeared to be together. What fanticastic special effects. I will certainly miss them.
26 Edna Hillcock from Bolton, Lancs.: Here in Bolton we have a park bench dedicated to Lloyd. I make sure I sit on it at least once a week. Usually Thursday's.
25 Kitty Miaow from Harrow: I really love Lloyd's pasta sauce range and welcome him leaving the show to
concentrate on that. His tomatoe and basil one is a real delight for the tastebuds. I think Columbo will be more than happy to replace him. The wiry detective has been out of work for a while and would be excellent at the job.
24 Bill Ocks from Teesside: Loyd "Who speaks with a voice like this?" Grossman is a spoon-stuffing chef-man with no place in current affairs. I'm glad the show's producers have finally listened to me after all my letters. I'm in favour of a more professional snooper. Andy 'SAS' McNabb would inject a note of danger into a staid format. "David its over to you. (radio crackle) Over."
23 Larry Hanro O' Hanrohan from Iowa: Greetings from the sunny ol' US. I used to watch this show on the UK Gold satellite Channel. It's great fun! Even though I've seldom heard of the celebrities involved. In these days of Reality TV, maybe the format should be changed to incorporate normal people being probed, rather than the rich and famous. I think it would be fun checking out Henry Normal's laundry! Oh hang on - the panel would have a tough job wouldn't they. Heh, heh, heh.
22 Matt Ress-Back from Emley Moor: Perhaps Paul Burrell, with his honest, trustworthy demeanour, not to mention his high class connections and upbringing would be an ideal replacement. "Who lives in a house as barren as this?"
21 Deidre Kehoe from Doncaster: Although I'd love to give Sir David a hand myself, I think John Ketley would make a lovely partner for him. John Ketley is a weatherman and an all round broadcasting marvel. I can feel a warm front coming on already.
20 Jack Barabass from Donegal: What about that nice man Mr Schofield taking over from Lloyd? He seems t'be getting on everything these days and he seems such a smashing chap. Think it's cause he's from the Celtic shores of Cornwall myself. My vote's on him getting the job. Who on earth is Sandi Toksvig anyway?
19 Pippa Alpeeps from Felixstowe: Through The Keyhole has brought my family hours of joy. However, I want to offer a word of caution to people like Mr Bender. While it's tempting to recreate the show at home, don't look through other peoples keyholes. My son Tom did and only narrowly escaped community service.
18 Susan Eyeglass from Glamorgan: I work for a listings company and we get privileged information about the guests on Through The Keyhole before the transmission date! It's the highlight of my week when I fool my friends by getting the answer right, EVERYTIME. What am I gonna do now? Huh? Come back Lloyd.
17 Lester Mofo from Illfracombe: I'm scandilised by the suggestion that Ms Tosskvig could step in to replace Lloyd. No disrespect to Sandi, who has blossomed on Call My Bluff, but shouldn't we be persuading the drawling Bostonian to put down his NHS pinny and return to his deft celebrity probing. Come on Lloyd, it's over to you.
16 Ian Lloyd from Warrington: I can't believe Loyd is leaving. What a pain in the backside for Sir David because they've been at it for years. I just hope Sir David has the heart and spunk to carry on alone. Maybe Sandi Toksvig could lend him a hand? I'd be interested to know who everyone else thinks should replace Loyd.
15 Marcia Fluffer from Abergavenny: Thing I like best is the way everybody clearly enjoys Loyd’s scrutiny. I will never forget the look on Wayne Sleep’s face as he bounded out to greet Sir David. It was a smile I think only the just-keyholed can wear.
14 William K Bender from Wakefield: As a pensioner, it was one of my greatest joys in yesteryear to watch through the keyhole. I tried looking through the keyhole of our house in Wakefield, a game I enjoyed with my wife until her untimely death in 1992. Good luck Lloyd, I hope you are off to a better place.
13 Deidre Kehoe from Doncaster: Sadly it's true - lovely Lloyd is going. Like Arthur I'd like a "Best of" vid as I missed Lloyd keyholing Sir David. I can only imagine the panel's suprise when he came through Sir David's door.
12 Andy McNally from Leeds: Loyd helped me through my darkest days when I dropped a car on my foot in the 1990s. I'll miss you mate, keep cogitating!!
11 Ian Lloyd from Warrington: Oh no! Deidre is it true Loyd is leaving? He and Sir David are a massive pair - so much talent.
10 Mabel from Askwith: Lloyd don't desert your keyhole. We love you. Will miss you peeping in others houses.
9 Arthur Popp from Heckmondwyke: What chance a "Best of" video? Can’t believe I missed the great Lloyd “twitching” in Bill Oddie’s bedroom.
8 Deidre Kehoe from Doncaster: I'm so sad Lloyd is going. I never failed to watch him snooping around someone's house like only he can. He's lovely and I'd love to see through his keyhole.
7 Ian Lloyd from Warrington: I remember the time Sir David Frost himself was 'keyholed' by Lloyd. It was a marvellous sight. It shocked the entire panel - even Sandi Toksvig!
6 G SHARPE from London: I am writing a book about Screaming Lord Sutch and am anxiousto track down details of his appearance on Through The Keyhole. I can be contacted via email@example.com or on 0208 918 3731.
5 Layla and Steph from Wales: WE LOVE YOU LLOYD!!!
Give us news on the dates for you and Richard Whitely...We need to buy hats!
4 Kerry Edwards from Essex: I too love LLoyd (even more than David!!) I am the queen of conquering his unique voice. Some ppl can't stand him, while others like myself and Charlotte are loyal fans!
3 Charlotte Spooner from Essex: I think Lloyd has the funniest voice, it sounds half posh, half American! I must be his biggest fan as I'm always talking the way he does! I agree that the statements, LETS TAKE A LOOK THROUGH THE KEYHOLE and WHO LIVES IN A HOUSE LIKE THIS? are classics, and I will never forget them!!!
2 Jane McGlocklan from Wales: I love the bit "Who lives in a house like this", I even prank people saying it! LOL
1 Chris Loop from Maes - G: The best bit has got 2 be... "WHO LIVES IN A HOUSE LIKE THIS... DAVID, ITS OVER TO YOU"
