Naked John Inman impersonator arrested for ‘striding down South Street in Chichester’
OLD impressionists never die, they just get tired and emotional:
A naked man impersonating a character from Are You Being Served has been arrested by police.
Startled shoppers saw the six-foot-tall nude male striding down South Street in Chichester at around 1:20pm this afternoon.
He went into a shop and yelled “I’m free!” before hugging a worker and trying to touch his face.
He’s not free any longer…

One of these cars, provided by the toy store Hamleys, will be competed for by the audience of “Mother Goose”, which opens at the Victoria Palace theatre on December 21st. The winner will be named by John Inman, the star, at the last performance of the pantomime. Date: 14/12/1981
