The Russians murdered him. Not long after the annexation of the Crimea, one of his game show contestants suggest Crimea was part of Russia, and Dale slapped him down. The Russians have form, after all.
My wife & I did 29 years back. There was a male "couple", who set up an Authority Registered childminding business in Falkirk.
We wondered why there was a waiting list, and found out when we went for our "interview" with them.
Suffice to say two real gents with real gravitas who took their jobs very seriously, and ran their household like clockwork. Their references were unimpeachable, and their clients included local lawyers, council people etc.
They were priceless in humour and fantastic with kids but you could sense the no-nonsense approach to their work.
Our kid was with them for 11 years. We still keep in touch.
For the older primary kids they taught basic economics ( pocket money level) cooking, team work etc. They were also Tai Kwon Do Black Belts, which resulted in our kid becoming Scotland's (then) youngest B-Belt due to their influence.
There are two sides to every coin.
