BELL, Madeleine

Ring my...FORMER BLUE MINK VOCALIST brought in to do holiday cover for Noel Edmonds, suspicious ‘post-prominence’ status suggesting she was brought in probably mainly on the basis that she could have a jingle with her name sung to the tune of Anita Ward’s Ring My Bell.

    She looks a bit like the actress who played Bambi in Diamonds are Forever in this photo. Perhaps it could have been the same person, maybe Noel had fallen for the classic chat up line” we’re having a ball”, held her hand and then got karated and had to take off a few weeks through injury. Instead of Perkins, her co presenter could have been Thumper from the same film. Can’t really recall any of her shows.

    I should have said Thumper, Bambi was the heftier of the two in DAF. Even so, old Noel was in intensive care for 3 weeks when she invited him to her ” ball”.

    * It’s her voice on the Wonderfuel Gas and Mattesson’s commercial jingles of the 80’s
