He does stage work now apparently. There were abuse allegations at one point but he was cleared. This may have killed his telly work (guessing).
Although he was on TV a while back I read, to promote panto that he was doing.

A less known fact is that he was in a sitcom called 'Room Service'. It is thrillingly bad.

I time-stamped his appearance here if you want to look. This is 1979. He is an actor.

Look at the formally dressed Eurovision crowd at the end of that vid. It's all rainbow onesies and glow sticks now. I blame Barry Hearn myself.

I'll have to split you somewhere down the middle.

75.3%

Even 70% would be a small miracle these days.

The BNP stood 2 candidates in '87. Didn't know they went back that far. They officially believed in white supremacy at the time, what a cheeky bunch of lads.

Sixty years ago today.

Who will be Miss TV Times? They'll be in their 80s now so pick wisely.
