Television: RICHARD AND JUDY
Timmy went on Channel 4's teatime chat show with Richard and Judy to discuss great things about the 80s. Along with comedian Tim Vine, Timmy talked about the 80s being a time of excitement, colour, big ideas and big characters.
"Don't forget that before the 80s there were ony 3 TV channels. They came on air at teatime and closed down at bedtime! Then along came breakfast TV, Channel 4 and before long 24 hour TV." said Timmy.
"So many big names got their big breaks in the 1980s - Lenmny henry and Tracey Ullman on Kick up the 80s, Rowan Atkinson on Not the Nine O'Clock news, Rik Mayall on the Young Ones, Robbie Coltrane on the Comic Strip and Harry Entwhistle."
Timmy was in full flow now...
"Kids TV was brilliant - Wacaday and the Wide Awake Club, pop music was exciting - Duran Duran, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and Culture Club. We had big celebrity heroes in the 1980s - Gary Lineker and Ian Botham in sport and of course Princess Diana...."
The only good thing about the 90s was of course Timmy's Number One hit itsy bitsy in 1990!
on the same show was Celebrity Big Brother winner Chantelle who wanted to play Mallett's Mallet (click on the photo to see who won!)
Guess who else was there with Chantelle?
Ordinary Boys' Preston tried on a pair of Timmy's spex and was delighted to be given his own Pinky punky to treasure forever!
