Scary stunts....

On last nights local news was a strory about a Yorkshire man who had won £7 million on the Lottery.

How very lovely for him. But what made the story a real joy was that the man was a stunt actor - ohh err how terribly exciting the news crew and all the viewers must have thought.. but then..... the story was about to take a down turn.

News man: "So what kind of films or programmes have you worked on as a stunt actor, have you ever been hurt?"...
Yorkshire man: "Well I am a stunt actor for Heartbeat...."

....silence.....

Can you imagine!! a flamin stunt actor for Heartbeat, whats the most dangerous thing that ever happens in one of the dullest shows ever to be produced...

"Oh nooo, I have slipped on a rogue ham sandwhich.... quick quick call Nick Berry, these litter bugs must be shot"...
or
"Arghhh" went the scream as Mr Brown got his slacks caught in his bicycle chain..

Must be a real hairy job that, stunt acting for Heartbeat, goodness, how his wife must worry.

Life er? You couldn't write that stuff, no one would believe it. Maybe he is a stunt double for the 'fruity' (attempting to be badger friendly here) scenes?

Slacks, what a wonderful word. It makes the flesh on my back crawl. The phrase I hate most is when middle aged shop assistants suggest that you slip into a pair of slacks. Ewwwwwwwwww, I think I need to sit down and blow into a bag.

You've got a point, being a stuntman on Last of the Summer Wine would be more hazardous than that! Merry Christmas to you lot, all the best! :-)
