Worzel Gummidge…..

Posted: January 7, 2012 in General

……….bring it back to TV there are so many actors out there who can play the parts without any added facial make up.

I don’t know if it’s something the government has put in the water but I’m beginning to see scarecrow Worzel Gummidge like characters everywhere on TV.
First there was Chesney out of Coronation Street, he could pass for Worzel’s son, now the Emmerdale character Laurel Thomas née Potts, now that’s a good Worzel Gummidge character’s name Laurel Potts, she could pass for his wife.

Recent other Worzel Gummidge character appearances have been Aunt Sally played by Una Stubbs seen on Sunday as Sherlock Holmes housekeeper, Dolly Clothes-Peg played by Lorraine Chase (Celebrity Jungle) and of course Saucy Nancy played by Barbara Windsor ex-Eastenders and now seen promoting some betting website.

If you haven’t a clue what I’m talking about this might refresh your memory.

UPDATE

Someone has sent me a couple of likely looking people who could play the part of Worzel Gummidge seeing how original actor Jon Pertwee died in 1996.
