What's the connection between Cilla Black and the channel? It's not a particularly obvious link, unless you happen to work at Ideal Hardware, based in New Malden, Surrey. For it is there in the offices of the storage and hardware distributor that you will find that rarity in the IT industry - a story with a happy ending. It all began 10 years ago on Blind Date, when Ideal Hardware's European sales manager Alex Tatham picked out the woman who was, three years later, to become his wife. They've been having a lorra, lorra laughs ever since. The Tathams, Alex and Sue, were the first couple to marry as a result of meeting on our Cilla's Saturday night show and they now have two children - Emily, aged four, and Charlie who is two. Happy endings, don't you just love 'em? Back in 1988, Alex's big line in front of the cameras was that he worked part-time as a Tarzan-O-Gram in the evenings. Sounds like the perfect training for life in the channel, as anyone will tell you - it's a jungle out there.
