    Me mother in law came over and shouted Ethel I said Ethel! (She shouts a lot because shes deaf as a post or maybe just maybe something else?)
    I said ethel what!

    She said that’s the name you should call her! So if it’s got the outlaws approval then Ethel it is:cool:

  17. Oh my god, I loved Gus Honeybun! He was fab. I lived in Plymouth for 7 years when I ended up at Art College there in the late 80s, and he was a cult hero. I worked at TSW for a while after leaving college (until they lost the franchise) and even got to meet Gus and give him a bit of a cuddle occasionally. I wonder where he ended up? Probably drunk in the corner of a seedy bar in Devonport telling anyone who'll listen about when he used to be on the telly......

  18. hahaha! that's ace! yep, i was at plymouth though based in exmouth/exeter where they kept the arts students in the early 90's though had been frequenting plymouth since '87.

    Gus was a hero in our digs!

    around '93 i worked in a friends pub in Ermington where one of the presenters (i think it was news) used to drink. A chap from hull called Roger, so obviously he became Roger Melly the man on the telly (i had nicknames for all the locals; alec the sailor, tony the tory, bob the racist etc :D), he would always talk loudly about being on TSW. I suspect he is with Gus now in devenport :D
