Erstwhile (6)

Ross

I think it could be either:

Which length description are you looking for?:

6

8

former

'erstwhile' is the definition.
(I know that erstwhile can be written as former)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for former that I've seen before include "long ago" , "The first of two mentioned" , "Past; first (of two)" , "not present" , "Of an earlier period, or mentioned before another" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent and the Evening Standard.
