She was well known for impersonating Cher. Except Cher is still alive. Well, the bits of Cher that remain Cher. Anyway, this isn't about Cher.

Pete the jakey aka Jake D'Arcy is meant to have died. Gregory's girl, still game etc etc.
Looking for links/confirmation.

If true, a crying shame. I remember him from Tutti Frutti in particular, but he always seems to have been around.

I used to know the girl that played his still game onscreen wife, and she would talk about having to go to his local in Kilmarnock so they could appear as a couple :lol:

 

It's confirmed. http://www.dailyreco...ributes-5789769 RIP Jake.
