My late Uncle Garth was the absolute spitting image of Simon Brint - and he was beyond all doubt the King of the Wok!
Nobody ever made a better Stir-fry - sorry Ken Hom! - close but no cigar!!! :o>

(Simon Brint was with Rowland Rivron in the house band 'Raw Sex' on French & Saunders)

Sorry Suzy, but did he actually open any Lidl stores. If he didn't ,I'm not sure it qualifies him. That would be akin to me, trading on my slight resemblance to Skippy !

Pixie, don't you know when someone is pulling your leg? HuwieHex asks ''Who is Rita Fairclough?'' As if there's anyone who doesn't know!!
