surely Bruce Forsyth is worth a mention

Indeed.
He's so popular, he has his own thread ... For Brucie Click Here
life, n : the whim of several billion cells to be with you for a while.

Dodo deado, Dodi deado, Di deado, Dando deado ... Surely Dido's looking dodgy ?

Despite the high cost of living, it still seems popular.

You don't see bloody Roy Walker for ages and he then appears on a promtion on Sky's Interactive service. (not that i use that service..... just happen to be browzing.................) He looks older since he left Catch Fraze and his perfectly groomed hair looks thinner and not as well kept! But he is still going , not sure if that is a good or bad thing??????? :o

Probably whining about the Elgin marbles still.

Severe trivia overload!
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

Wondering if the host of Mr and Mrs - the most successful show in the modest history of Carlisle based Border Television - is still breathing.

Anyone know?

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Derek has just sold the family jewels - i.e. the rights to Mr and Mrs - for a shitload of cash. The show's comin' back without him. Only heard the story third hand. Seems he's still healthy enough to enjoy the cash. So far as I can tell he didn't whisper hoarsely; 'I'm not long for this world, take all I have.' It was more along the lines of a calmly conducted transaction after some tense negotiations.

surely a cache of sh*t is a more realistic payment for such a crap gameshow format.

My consumption of alcohol is a coping mechanism, without the alcohol  the terror of the actualité would overwhelm me.

Just sold?

MPFC, you need better news sources.

This is old news. This story was first reported in July and Batey is acting as a consultant.


He's probably already splashing the cash.

Aye, it was a friend of a friend jobbie. He's not - I think - doing a lot of consulting, more relaxing in the sun and spending his cash. He, his wife and his daughter live pretty well on his vast stash of money.

When he's not working cruise ships, Roy Walker's living in Scotland and going out with a 30 something year old optician who's a good friend of a good friend. Nothing wrong with his health to report!
