Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  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)
     
  2. And you wanted to share this with us?
     
  3. 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......
     
  4. Have you no culture!!??

    Have you no notion of the God like status created for him by Morecambe and Wise???

  5. How do I sign up for it Dale? Not putting myself forward obviously, but you know what I mean...
     
  6. 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.

  13. MrsD is also with the Snail here. I thought he had snuffed it when I saw the thread. Bugger..
    Added.. TheSpecialOne is my phone a friend on Millionaire if I get a question on Des :wink:
     
  14. 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:
     
  15. 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."
