Trivia

Was married to Caroline Quentin.

Presenter of Room 101.

Has sometimes been confused with the Arsenal player, Paul Merson.

Merton's second wife, Sarah Parkinson, died on 23 September 2003, of breast cancer.

After seven nominations for a BAFTA award for Best Entertainment Performance, Merton finally won the award in April 2003, ironically defeating fellow HIGNFY star Angus Deayton who had just recently been fired from the show.

In 2003, he was listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy.
