I think you win this bout of Game Show trivia amcd. I think Modern Fossil was relaxing in a gentleman's way when he was watching Win Lose or Draw. Was it not that short arsed Danny baker then ....dare I utter his name Shane Ritchie. Hold on I think I'm about to be sic.....

::): I'd copyright that like it was yesterday Ronnie. Auld Tams getting on a bit so much so you can almost smell the steak pie. Do it the easy way (cheap) an SAE to yourself with the above logo in an envelope, get the PO to franc (stamp) the licked down end of the envelope.....Viola! retirement sooner rather than later :wink: and under no circumstances open it until the court case. Which will no doubt be Scott Vs CocaCola Inc.
We can negotiate my cut in due course.

Anyone notice that when the sainted Johnny attended Rikki Fulton's funeral he was wearing the same bloody awful anorak that he wears in River City, you'ld think after all these year in "showbiz" he would have a suit even if it was only a red spangly one from some stage show!

Seem to remember that Steve Hamilton did the voice overs for this show and after announcing that the show was called Now You See It intoned "Now You See Him - your host Johnny Beattie!" cue enthusiastic applause from the audience.

There is a tape of a winner on "now you see it" and the winner trying to get the money from beattie who won't give it to him, the guys reaching his hand out and beattie is showing it to the cameram every time the guy reaches for it, beattie snatches it away. he got a cheque six weeks later.
Is this gonna be a standup fight, sir, or another bughunt?

Yes, Richard "Ibrox" Parks, who memorably shouted in the middle of a football commentary featuring a certain team "... and we've scored!" Bing Hitler did a very good spoof on one of his albums, called Late Night DJ.

I remember hearing a story about the 'celebrity' cretin Bryan Burnett (Brian with a Y ffs) going into a clothes shop in the City Centre. After paying for his stuff, he allegedly said to one of the assistants 'Thank you for not making a fuss over me'
God, I hope that story is true.

I have a payback story

I was at a works do a few years ago and Johnny Beattie was the after dinner speaker. He did his bit which was ok then he mingled with everyone after the meal a co worker kept following him about the room saying "CAN YOU SEE IT, CAN YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU SEE IT" he thought this was funny at first, then became very agitated because she was quite drunk and every time he spoke to someone new she would start again.

He was supposed to stay for a while and mingle but he buggered off early.

The girl fell asleep in the toilet, missed the first hour of the staff conference the next day and had to keep excusing herself to run to the toilet to be sick.

Staff do's are brill for scandal and goss.
