Reg Varney - RIP

#1
RIP indeed.

Top prog was On The Buses.

Who would have shagged Olive?

Not this callsign.

I also read that he was the first person in the world to use a cashpoint machine.

Remarkable.

Ex soldier (well, REME, anyway) and a good comedian, but probably best known for the bus series. Did some good work with Benny Hill, before that one became a star. And of course, The Rag Trade.

He was indeed the first person to use a cash point machine, being the celebrity who opened the very first one.
A good comedian and a very nice man, by all accounts.

Reg, top lad, fully agree with B.S

Plenty. I do believe she used to be a stripper in a, ahem, hostess club before she turned to acting.

Amazing what a bit of make up in the wrong place and milk bottle glasses will do for a gal.

IIRC she did some scutty pictures. I'd be impressed if anyone could dig them out of the Tinterweb.

As for the prog, I remember thinking that I wanted to be a bus driver when I grew up.

I'm still not sure what I'm going to do.
