Gordon Is A Moron...

Last night Ian treated me to a trip to the Bloomsbury Theatre to see Fawn Again starring the rather amusing Graham Fellows.

And who he? Well, Graham Fellows played a 'young man' in Coronation Street in Janaury 1979 who chatted up Gail Potter whilst she was waiting for Brian Tilsley outside a cinema. It says here. And he now lives near Grantham in Lincolnshire. None the wiser? Ok, well, perhaps you might know Graham better as Sheffield-born bon viveur and keyboard ace John Shuttleworth - star of radio, TV, film and now cartoon.

Shuttleworth's dry Northern humour is quite winning. And last night's show was as dry as a nun's snatch.

In fact Graham has a previous alter-ego too: Jilted John. Graham scaled the heights of the UK single charts in 1978 with the classic punk-esque single Jilted John. The song peaked at number 4 and another two singles followed, though they did not reach the charts. Also released an album entitled "True Love Stories".
