Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear

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.

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.
