Not again? There's a letter missing from that word, and I do hope it was the letter 'a'... :shock:
Anyway, there was only one Jimmy Saville. He just ran around a lot.

yep we had that weird fire elephant visit, seem to remember multiple visits during my time at primary school

worst of all was having to write a play about the dangers of drink driving for drama gcse in year 10, astonishingly I went on to study writing for publication for 4 years at college, before we had to do that I had written something about a game show being rigged and two of the contestants finding out and the producer ends up being bribed by them for their silence

(and even now some 17 years later I am astonished it wasnt our coursework performance)

Haha! We had Wellyphant too, very sinister indeed, a brawny, portly man in a velour-y suit all covered in bits and bad stitches, smelling a bit like p!ss. Yucky.

Ah, the late 80s, Wellyphant, When The Wind Blows, the emergence of the AIDS virus and Rock Hudson's subsequent gaunt-cheeked death from it. Good times. :wink:
