I loved Nana in the Royale Family. I remember one episode where Anthony brought a girl home for dinner and she was vegetarian (cue shocked faces). Nana asked Barbara if the girl could have wafer thin ham🤣. So well written and Liz Smith portrayed Nana brilliantly.
Yep, Liz Smith played her brilliantly…and the acerbic exchanges between her and Jim Royle (Ricky Tomlinson) were great 😊
Opens cupboard just out of camera making sure Chef Mark isn’t in there burning it down tonight. Gets hit by 20,000 packs of felt tip pens and a Spirograph kit and a set square…***in’ ‘hit ‘ole…..he sharts…
I got a Spirograph for Christmas when I was about 8, I loved it, kept me occupied for hours🙂

Wasn't she also in I Didn't Know You Cared? I heard that, Pardon...And all that. A fantastic actress...
That takes me back. My dad was always saying that, it was his catchphrase🤣

Agreed. That's why you look for trolls to picked up by the moderators. Or swung around by the administrators.
I'm sure that's illegal in some countries😆

Well she was in Vicar of Dibley also as Letitia Cropley. Mustard and banana sandwiches, or cherry and marmite cake anyone? 🍰

I kid you not, I hopped on the YT feed and randomly stopped at a part where the new guy from C&C was flogging sunglasses. I watched all but 30 secs, however I heard him say this ...

'I'm really hoping these don't sell out, cause I'm on air now and we can't buy products when we're on air ...'

HA HA HAaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

It must be in the sales manual they all use '101 top bullsh1t sales techniques for use on selly telly.'

They all succumb to spouting the bullsh1t in the end ;)
Mike on the " Swiss Design" watch, you can't put Swiss on a watch unless it meets certain criteria as stipulated by the Swiss Confederation.

What criteria is that Mike? Is it that it must be a watch from UK brand, assembled in a Far East factory, with a Malaysian (might be China) assembled Seiko movement supplied by Seiko's TMI in Hong Kong, does that meet the Swiss criteria as laid down by the Swiss Confederation?

Oh the weight, the weight, they're obsessed with the ****** weight of watches. :ROFLMAO:
Trust the bald fella and his multiple conversations with himself
