(for the mongs who said they don't know who this is, it's Marnie and Lewis from CBB who had a romance in the house but, it would appear, have met before)

deep_stoat 11:31, reply

Erm...I'm pretty sure that's Peter Capaldi and Martika, actually...

Not according to TinEye

which I admit I had to use to find out who these Z-listers were when the image was first posted! I won't repeat this response in triplicate, but it would be the same in each case.

Drummer from The Inspiral Carpets, Craig Gill

Runs music tours of Manchester for GBP25 a pop. This Saturday he gave two 'Morrissey and The Smiths' tours. The morning one had 85 people on it (nice work if you can get it!) Highlights include Strangeways Prison, Salford Lads Club, Morrissey's childhood home and the Southern Cemetary. Comedy moment of the tour? This joke:

Q. What does Morrissey have in his sandwiches?

A. I don't know, but Johnny Marr might.

The guy who invented

The crossword is buried in Southern Cemetary. From the main gate, his grave is two down and four across.

Danny Dyer spotted in Stratford John lewis yesterday, buying something from men's accessories. I couldn't make out what, but it wasn't underpants because that's the aisle I was in. He was incredibly loud, but very polite to the assistant who pointed him to the pay desk. IDNSHK.

The thick doesn't fall far from the thin

The "surprise" at the end of last night's Huawei Honor 8 launch in San Francisco turned out to be Brooklyn Beckham, the firm's new Global Ambassador. He was introduced with an edgy video of said 17-year old skating, shaving someone's head, and his desire to be a professional photographer.

Describing the event as "crazy" he made his look like Cicero on stage. Fluffed the line "It's the best camera I've used on a camera, on a phone sorry," got presented with a ceremonial skateboard, and then got led around the exhibit by the Honor CEO looking somewhat bored.

I wonder who gets his royalties?

Bearing in mind that he obviously never would have made it beyond about 1991.

This is what the A-Level triplets look like now.

arseface 10:49, reply

Are they conjoined?

deep_stoat 11:56, reply

It would have been a better joke if the Beverley sisters had indeed been triplets

In fact, Teddie and Babs were twins who had an older sister, Joy. In any case, they couldn't now be conjoined, as Joy died last year. For the benefit of younger PB readers, Joy was married to the late former England football captain Billy Wright. They were a glamorous couple, truly the Posh and Becks of their day, though they each had more talent (and carried more weight) than Skeletor and Dave.
