From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gary Peter Anthony Waller (born 24 June 1945) is a British Conservative politician. He was originally MP for Brighouse and Spenborough from 1979 until 1983, when after boundary changes abolished the seat, he was elected for nearby Keighley – defeating the Labour incumbent Bob Cryer.

At the 1997 general election, he lost his Keighley seat to Labour's Ann Cryer, widow of Bob Cryer.

Waller appeared on the second ever installment of Cilla Black's popular 1980's TV show Blind Date in 1985. He picked Annie McGee, and their Blind Date was a day at Pontin's holiday camp in Southport, Lancashire.
