A SINCERE apology goes out to DJ Rick O'Shea, who triumphed as the winner of Celebrity Mastermind.
A year ago, I suggested that Rick was "hardly a man of letters" when he joined a campaign to save art-house cinema The Lighthouse.
In the TV3 quiz however, he scored 15 points in his specialised subject, the solar system, and in the general knowledge round scored an amazing 17 points. I tried the same questions, and got 10.
Rick, you may still have the cheesiest name on radio, but I patently misjudged you, bow to your superior knowledge, and humbly eat my words.
