Alex James sells grated cheese in Pudsey – Alan Partridge has a cousin
ALEX James. He lives in the same area as David Cameron, Jeremy Clarkson and Rebecca Brooks. Rumour has it – any Iranian and Chinese readers should look away now – Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, is also the secret headquarters of all the UK’s military weapons’ systems. One bomb and – kapow! – the UK is fallen.
Anyhow, back to the main event. Alex James, who found fame with Blur, was once selling his cheese in Asda, Pudsey. As the last nodding head observer, wrily: “Really, really special.”
Asda has now dropped most of James’s cheeses. An Asda spokesperson informed the Daily Star: “Clearly some of them were ahead of their time.”
