My fave was when our local regional news programme interviewed an elderly couple who had been to London to sign the book for Diana.

"Here are Frank and Mabel who have been to London!"

They'll probably interview some saddo fan who has spent their entire life savings on non-refundable tickets to see him every night of the tour

A guy who owns a local nightclub claimed to have been 'involved' with him in the 70s so they might seek him out.

lol oh yes
they do use the internet there a lot - being no shops

No the internet is down across the county -seems to be some problem with the power source, which has ground to a halt

I'm OK though as we live just across the border grin
