Seemed nice. Sorry, I'll stop namedropping now.
Still going strong...
He's a nice guy and he sure knows his candles
They have external judges and she does decor and atmosphere. It's incredibly poignant.
I guiltily really enjoyed Perfect Housewife.
Anthea Turner and .... err... .Michael Eavis?
hale and pace
that's all of them I think?
...remember reading that while suffering from depression he didn't leave his flat for six months.
It was always a toss up between him and john sessions as to who was the most smugly lovie man on WLIIA.
Sessions usually won, but slattery was by far the more irritating.
hasn't changed a bit.
He was fucking mindblowing.
The Chuckle Brothers.
Bodger of Bodger & Badger.
Was in a car crash a couple of years ago. RIP DBP
According to that, loads of his projects got cancelled in the aftermath. So, what, they saw the rumours and didn't think to ring him up and check? They just went "He's dead, better cancel all his shit"?
at bangface weekender a few years ago
Edd The Duck
does online reviews of perfumes (?) and is on us telly sometimes apparently.
She has aged well.
Just grabbed a load from the lyrics to 'John Kettley is a weatherman'
I forget which disappeared. Or did neither? Could never tell the two apart...
I'm sorry to hear that. I think I recall quite liking him when I was younger.
He's gone back to TV reviews in the Telegraph, having pretty much invented the concept in the mid-70s.
I always wondered...
was apparently doing onboard radio for BA. He's alienated himself from the BBC which is a shame.
Used to love God's jukebox on the few occasions I caught it. One of the last great radio shows.
Might be called James something.
genuinely couldn't remember if he was dead or alive when I thought about him the other day.
in Red Dwarf, and had that programme about the leisure centre. Him.
on how stuffs made and ware programs on yesterday
Does loads of voiceover work, and is appearing in the next no-doubt dire Red Dwarf iteration
him, Ryan Gosling and Jessica Chastain just seem to have vanished
An actor who was a thalidomide baby and had very short arms as a result.
He later appeared in a BBC2 drama that was billed as the first ever drama about disability to feature two disabled leads. He was pretty decent but the woman in the leading role really, really, realy couldn't act.
Anyway, forget his name but haven't seen him for a while.
Stared in the greatest film unknown to man:
...outside Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. Lovely bloke but not a rap fan (he left said venue due to them playing "some hip hop shit" and gave us a ticket in). Pretty sure he mainly lives out there now, which is why you don't see him much - his missus is a local and he was doing some burlesque show residency thing in Coney Island, which incidentally is one of the biggest shitholes I've ever been to, like Blaenau Ffestiniog with a beach.
When he isn't tweeting photos of his 'trollfoot', he appears in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Eric the eel
Fat Barbadian cricketer (or some WI island)
Derek Redmond's dad
Antoine de Caunes
what's up doc?
The latter may well be dead though.
Full on thought he was dead until he popped up in that Churchill ad
possibly lost in the claustrophobic knit of an excessively wooly sweater...
Walking his dog
A memorable moment occurred when Mallett met the then-Prime Minister in 1990, Margaret Thatcher - and bashed her with the mallet
for harassing Lizo off newsround about Harry Potter
^ good one
zig and zag
But haven't seen much of the Young Ones lately. I think I might have seen Adrian Edmonson in something or other, but Rik Mayall, Nigel Planer and, um, the other guy - haven't seen them for years.
Ben Elton thankfully had a show that bombed in Australia, after being plugged the shit out of throughout the cricket, and was pulled from the air after one episode. Not even given a late night slot, and he hasn't inflicted himself upon us since. Used to be here every bloody summer, stinking the place up.
They do folk covers of punk classics:
Pretty sure I saw Edmondson on some shitty Nick Knowles consumer watchdog style show recently.
Jamie Theakston (more than like dis for a London based radio station?)
on that shitty Payday UK ad? Keep calm and log on?
As in "Where the fuck is Val Doonican these days?"
I can't be arsed to Wiki him but I'm sure he hasnt "passed on"
(RIP if he has)
He was on a BBC4 documentary about trams a couple of months ago.
And each and every one of those shows will be about five hours long.
