A Turn For The Worse

‘REMEMBER when Vic Reeves was edgy, witty and original? No, neither do we.

Vic was funnier when he was with Bob Mortimer

We’ve all become so used to seeing the comedian looking stale and sad as he poses for showbiz magazines and appears on reality TV shows that it’s hard to believe he ever made us laugh for the right reasons.

And now we reach another lowly staging post in the showman’s slide from grace.

The Express reports that Reeves has been charged with drink-driving after an alleged hit-and-run crash.

The story goes that Reeves was at the wheel of his vintage Jaguar when it crashed into his neighbour Michelle Tong’s car. Reeves then carried on without stopping, careering up a grass bank and ploughing through a fence outside his Maidstone pile.

This left Churchill Insurance with little option but to sack Reeves from his job of voicing their adverts.

And while the case is under investigation, Reeves will remain silent elsewhere too, and put his finger to his lips when confronted by journalists.

Although, his keen-to-be-noticed wife, former lapdancer Nancy Sorrell, does get her words in the paper and her name in print.

“The most important thing is that nobody was hurt,” says she who can be hired. “We are not allowed to say anything. You have your scoop, what more is there to say?”

Then, having resisted the urge to answer her own question in song, remove her clothes or tell a joke, Nancy and her husband walked into the sunset.

And obscurity…

Paul Sorene is the Anorak’
