This won't mean anything to anybody below a certain age - nor anybody outside of the UK probably ... but I just saw Des O'Connor on a Tesco advert on telly!!!

I don't think I've seen Des since the days of Eric and Ernie.

Was I dreaming? Did anybody else see it?  Tell me I'm not imagining things (again) please ...

Yes,I saw it. He still hasn't discovered autotune.
It would be much better if he were sat in an Xmas Audiospares advertising a Melodyne.

He's singing the right notes - but not necessarily in the right order.

Some older people in Eastbourne and Sittingbourne think he is an ICON,even with the rethatch and sticky tape.If Eric and Ernie liked him then he is alright by me.

Christmas hasn't been the same since Eric 'n' Ernie ceased trading  Remember when a nation gathered around the box to see Angela Rippon's legs!!!!
