British television personality and host of "Multi-Colored Swap Shop" from 1976-82, followed by "Cheggers Plays Pop." Chegwin openly discussed his problems with alcohol on live TV on 11/05/1992 and wrote about his addiction extensively in his autobiography. He first checked into rehab on 11/01/1991 for five weeks. Seven months after he stopped drinking, he began an acrimonious divorce to end an 11-year marriage.

After years of being seen as unfashionable and irritating, he appeared on the vulgar magazine show, "The Word," on 4/12/1993 and his sobriety led to a career revival. On 8/16/1993 he joined the cast of "The Big Breakfast Show."
