TV: R is for...


COMMERCIAL CHIP off the CHEGGERS block. Best remembered for “Rah! Rah! Rah!” theme and LISA STANSFIELD debuting as juvenile presenter. Other culprits included sub-DLT bearded compere ALISTAIR “BMX BEAT” PIRRIE, and BREAKFAST TIME Teenage Correspondent ZOE “OLD MAN OF HOY” BROWN. Recurrent irritant – the Peggy Babcock game, wherein ver kids would have to say this tongue twister three times in order to win a copy of Into The Gap by The Thompson Twins and Grandstand Firefox.

    Alistair Pirrie was one of the most annoying TV presenters ever – like a younger Christopher Biggins with the same silly glasses but with an even more irritating nervous laugh. He guest appeared on an episode of SuperGran around the same time I recall.

    Looks like a young Patsy Kensit trying to get Eighth Wonder noticed. I can’t think of any other hits they had, apart from that Pet Shop Boys cover, with Patsy in a mini skirt on TOTP. She also did a passable South African accent.
