Des OConnor

#1
Just watched the Des O'Connor advert for Tescos on TV.

Priceless!!!

Des O'Connor should release a song for Crimbo!!! :D

(I thought it was an ad for a new album until the penny dropped)

I thought you were going to say he'd snuffed it then and wondered who had him in the "2008 Dead Pool". There's only a month left you know......

Damn! I'm with The_Snail here, did really think that he'd gone to the great stage show in the sky.

I can forgive Eric and Ernie for many things but taking a talentless clot like him and making him a star is something that I can't. Sorry guys.

I beleive that Des O'Connor is going to cover Middle of the Roads "Where's your mama Gone?" and dedicate it to Shannon Matthews

Lippy, if Des karks it before the end of the year though, how bad will we feel? In fact, if he does, can we start "wishing" other people away?

Stella, they have to be famous before you kick off. :wink:

And so to the origins of the old chesnut "Do you have a criminal record?" "Well I've got a copy of Careless Hands, by Des O'Connor."

I just had a quick "Search" (because I know where the "Search" button is), and it doesn't seem like we did one this year. I could find the 2007 one, but not this years. Hmmmm. Are we getting forgetful in our old age my luvver?

I'd be destroyed if Cliff Richard popped his clogs this week, imagine all the shite we'd have in the Pop Charts at Christmas? There'd be no worry about the X Factor mullarky winning. All the grannies would be buying his "Mistletoe and Wine" for the 17th time and it would probably turn into an Outrage Fest even bigger than that Lady Di. Imagine the smell of THAT funeral?

Please don't die till after Crimbo Cliff - I coodny handle it!!!

Aw them Cliff songs - shudder!!!!

Go easy on the "mullarky" usage if you please - a great name not to be taken in vain.
