This is me shouting the odds some 48 hours later with Frank in perfect nick. By this time of course Frank is fully fit and the BAFTAs have been and gone and we’ve had some commentary from Jason Solomons on Sunday night.

Cilla charity flop

Shocked and stunned, I was, to discover that the official Cilla Black charity fund in aid of sick children in Liverpool raised a pitiful £143.
