A celebrity stop gap


Spiv & Chimps.


Morning, hope that you are all well.

Fancy a quickie about knob-ed-celebs?

Of course you fucking do.


Lets start with Coronation Street.

And, I am pleased to say that there was at least one Corrie actor who had a bit of Integrity.

“Albert Tatlock Spiv”?

No Voicey, much more recent than that. I am in fact talking about Sean Wilson.

“Who Spiv”?

Exactly Voicey, exactly… See what happens if you don’t toe the line?

“No Spiv, what happens”?

You end up making Cheese for a living:

Sean Wilson was born 4th April1965 in Ashton-under-Lyne. He is an English actor who played Martin Platt in Coronation Street from 1985 to 2005. He has also appeared in Casualty, Silent Witness, and Dalziel and Pascoe. He trained at the Oldham Theatre Workshop and first auditioned for the parts of Kevin Webster and Terry Duckworth. Prior to his debut in the Street, he appeared for Granada in Crown Court.

Wilson left Coronation Street by mutual agreement in 2005 as he refused to take part in a storyline which would have seen his character have a relationship with an underage girl. He gave up acting and opened a cheese making business. Shortly afterwards it was stated by a Coronation Street spokesman that the door would always be left open for Wilson to return, and in 2009 he was reported as saying that he would be interested in a return to the programme. However in 2013, he vowed he would never return to the street.  Source

Remember him now? He was a right Platt apparently… The others are just right prats

Meanwhile, over in France the French are getting excited over a rumour that Barry Obama is slipping Beyonce a length:

A French media firestorm has been circulating claims that Barack Obama and Beyonce are dangerously in love.

It came as Francois Hollande, France’s head of state and a well-known love cheat, arrived in America on an official state visit without his now-ex partner, Valérie Trierweiler.

Rumours of an affair between the American president and the superstar singer- both of whom are married- were first made on Europe 1 radio station this morning.  Source

They are on to a hiding to nothing there.

In fact I would imagine its just more old fanny to try convince the masses that Barry and Michael are splitting up.

I haven’t been able to work out why yet… As in why the media want us to think that the Obama marriage is on the rocks.

But I will.

Go-to singer: President Obama is an open fan of Beyonce as well as her husband Jay Z and they have served as fundraisers for his presidential campaigns

As for Barry & Beyonce being an item?

Well, it is fair to say that US presidents are prone to having the odd fling or two.

I mean, both John and Bobby Kennedy had affairs with Marilyn Munroe:

The tryst was to have unforeseen tragic consequences. While Marilyn became obsessed with the President, for him the weekend with the world’s most desirable woman was simply another notch – albeit an impressive one – on his bedstead.  Source

However, Beyonce is the wrong sex for Barry’s liking… Just sayin’.

And finally because there isn’t much quick news today, Shirley Temple has died.

Fuck me, I could have sworn that she died years ago:

Shirley Temple, America’s little darling, has passed away peacefully at her home in California at the age of 85.

The actress and singer died of natural causes at her home in Woodside, California, on Monday around 11pm, surrounded by her family and caregivers. 

‘We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife for 55 years of the late and much missed Charles Alden Black,’ her family said in a statement.  Read More

Farewell darling: Shirley Temple, pictured in movie Heidi in 1937, died on Monday night at the age of 85 at her home in California

Now I mention Shirley’s passing purely because of what we now know about Hollywood and show business in general.

And with that in mind, you just know that she must have had a rotten childhood bless her.

May she now Rest in Peace

Thats all for now, but not for long.
