Oh dear, that makes me feel old. I worked with Amanda over 30 years ago at Drury Lane Theatre when she was still relatively unknown. I'm a great fan. I think she's the only person to have punched the chef Gordon Ramsay in the face - on camera, anyway.

Incidentally, here in Britain Corrie has just been voted the best programme in 50 years of ITV. No great surprise.

I'm sorry I missed the Gordon Ramsay punch. She's also slapped Mike Baldwin.

Sorry, you'd already mentioned the viewers' poll on ITV. Wasn't paying attention. Slapped wrists for Willie.

Ok, this has no relation to this post, but who the bloody hell is this Steph chick I just saw on Corrie classics with Des? And what's the drama there?

I figured one of you wonderfully, beautiful people would be able to enlighten lil ol moi.

Johnnie: Steph is Des Barnes' ex-wife. Apparently she grew tired of Des (who could blame her?) and fecked off with another bloke. Then she sodded off and left that bloke behind and now it looks like she's up the duff with another man's child. And working in a job that demands little else than asking, "Would you like fries with that?" Des seems to find her irresistible in her jumbo elasticized-waist polyester pants and picks up the phone to call her. We can only imagine what happens next.
