Ha, awesome! I don't watch it (One Born Every Minute for those wondering) but I did catch the very end of this episode whilst waiting for something else to come on (possibly Undateables), and I'm thankful I did!

There's bound to have been some MWM lookalikes on that, surely?

Was quite an effort to get some and I wanted better than I actually got. Must've taken about 10 pictures of this guy of which these were the best 2 I got. He got up to toilet at one point so I thought this would be my great chance. But he was too quick at sitting back down to get a clear image of his face. When we got off the train I launched one last ditch attempt at trying to snap him. He was in front of me at the doors so I could only get a backshot which was no good so instead I set up my camera and then as we were walking on the platform, having got off, I pretended to be on my phone walking past him but actually trying to press my stupid camera button secretly. It didn't work though.

Yeah this technique is great for video (like that one I did of you in Trafalgar Square) but less reliable for photos by some distance.

I've just re-watched a classic film noir from 1947 (Out of the Past) and, temporal displacement issues notwithstanding, am certain that the deaf young man at the petrol station was played by Dylan Taylor. The credits said Dickie Moore, but I'm not fooled by such a crap pseudonym - I'm an expert on those.

Whilst I found this amusing and all, would rather have been asked for permission to post pictures off my FB on here- no worries though.

Ciaran, yeah, you're going mad. Keith Lemon actually has a full head of hair.

I don't get it. You've literally just posted two pictures of Susie Dent and tried to pass it off as some sort of lookalike. They're even more alike than Mark Deeks's two pictures.
