YOUTUBER shepdiggedy spots a Jimmy Savile record:
I found this flexidisc years ago in a record shop in Hull. Its a promotional record for Dale Farm yoghurts and has Jimmy interacting with members of the public promoting yoghurt. I wasn’t sure whether to post it or not as it could be taken out of context/edited, etc, but due to recent allegations on Jimmy’s past a friend insisted it was my public duty.
Taken as seen, you can hear Jimmy flirting with some young girls and inviting them back to his hotel later that evening, as well as laying claim to have invented yoghurt. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek for the most part…

As a pregnant mum, she was horrified that she found herself competing with Tulisa.
TO Italy for the Rome Film Festival were sex siren of the solver screen Gina Lollobrigida gives Miss Italy 2012 Giusi Buscemi the kind of look that says: “You in your pelmet crown. You will have to sleep with everybody…And you know what? I tell you what? You still won’t make it.” Gina Lollobrigida has pity.

UPS and downs for Dave Lee Travis. In June 2011, the former BBC Radio 1 DJ was revealed to be Suu Kyi’s lifeline. Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese pro-democracy leader, revealed the source of an unlikely lifeline when she was under house arrest – Hairy Cornflake Dave Lee Travis. The Nobel Peace Prize winner, who had spent 15 years under house arrest since 1989, said the DJ’s request show on the World Service helped make her “world much more complete“. Travis’s other great claim to fame was a resignation from Radio 1, telling the audience “…changes are being made here which go against my principles and I just cannot agree with them…”
So long, Smashie and Nicey.
Fast forward one year and Dave Lee Travis has been arrested.
