When I was a lot younger some of my friends thought I looked like Diane Keen who used to be in Doctors. She's aged better than I have, sadly.


Barbinsglos Report 19 Jan 2013 17:08

Oh yeh BC 'im :-D :-D

Geordie thats nice and she always looks so well groomed :-D


GinN Report 19 Jan 2013 17:04

She's not a character, but the woman in the post office thinks I look like Gloria Honeyford!.

:-DBarb....Wilfred Bramwell in Steptoe & Son?


Barbinsglos Report 19 Jan 2013 16:45

Thanks Ginnie sounds quite near the mark except Iam more auburn not married to a millionaire and dont go in much for mine shafts.
Apart from that he's got me to a tee.

From your avatar John you remind me of the old fella who lived with his son, had an old nag in the yard and ...... no its gone. I will remember in a bit


AnninGlos Report 19 Jan 2013 16:44

John you might at least choose character who are still in it!!!!


Wend Report 19 Jan 2013 16:41

A very attractive lady to resemble Rose :-)

When I was young I was told I looked like Koo Stark by a few people , and actually I do a bit ...she has gone grey also :-D


Sharron Report 19 Jan 2013 16:27

Ho ho ho.


Wend Report 19 Jan 2013 16:24

I was wondering that too Ann ;-)


JustJohn Report 19 Jan 2013 16:24

AnninG Uncanny this knack I've got. I think Mandy Dingle for you, whoever she is :-)

Edit. Wend - Chas Spencer is your part :-)

Edit again. Sharron - Sadie King


AnninGlos Report 19 Jan 2013 16:21

John if you don't watch it how can you choose people for the characters.


JustJohn Report 19 Jan 2013 16:16

If anyone else implies I am not funny, I will not contribute any more :-P


Island Report 19 Jan 2013 16:12

Nooo Rose, Fred Elliott was funny.
John's more Farmer Giles


JustJohn Report 19 Jan 2013 16:12

Fred? I heard that, Rose. I say, I heard that.

I used to think I looked very much like Ronald Allen. He was editor in Compact, David Hunter in Crossroads and, despite his very average looks, managed to eventually get married in real life to gorgeous Sue Lloyd.

I was conducting a class about 15 years ago. I overheard two of the girls talking during a break. "He's quite nice, but isn't he like Fred Elliott off Corrie" :-D :-D


Guinevere Report 19 Jan 2013 16:08

I think you're more like Rosemary, Rose. I've seen photos.


supercrutch Report 19 Jan 2013 16:06

Never watched it in my life so right over my head :-D :-D

Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose Report 19 Jan 2013 16:00

I think if pushed I'd put John as more of a Fred Elliot ? ( Corrie), ;-)

and me? I'm more like Laura Thyme from 'Rosemary and Thyme' lol, sensible shoes, hair scragged back for gardening, and likes to investigate ;-)


JustJohn Report 19 Jan 2013 16:00

I like the idea I am like Edna. Can see that :-D

But not like her as Rose in Keeping up Appearances. She was a bit of a looker and a goer in those days ;-)

Oh, perhaps.....


JustGinnie Report 19 Jan 2013 16:00

BarbinGlos, Katie is a delightful girl who is married to a millionaire (well he was) she is in her 20s, blonde and is recovering from falling down a disused mine shaft at the moment. She can be a bit moany at times :-(

Does this sound like you at all? :-D :-D
