So. Ladies of a certain age - what do we think? I don't normally watch Eastenders but I'm afraid I had to last night! I do think he's aged quite well (better than my other crush David Cassidy) but I can't help thinking of that lovely young man on TOTP singing Rock On!!!

He has grown old very gracefully he's always been a looker.

I would given the chance grin

Oh crap, I hate Eastenders and now I am going to HAVE to watch it!

I went out with a DE lookalike in my 20's, he was soooo gorgeous but had to end it when realised he was a complete drunk. Boo hoo.sad

Cheeky, he wasn't a teacher was he? My old maths teacher was the spit of him!

God no, a mechanic. The drink ruined his look, even had those sparkly eyes and lovely dark curls...........

I'm sorry, but sadly he just looked OLD and, even more sadly - that made me feel OLD!!!

well DH just had to point him out to me in EE - he doesnt watch it btw! he said listen to this - who is it
looking at him i had no bloody idea
but listening to him - i did!
i didnt recognise him at all! i was a bit shock

southeastastra Fri 10-Jun-11 20:04:23

he's still nice, i'm watching ee and never watch it usually grin

there will just always be something about him

southeastastra Fri 10-Jun-11 20:07:46

he should be more appreciated for his acting stardust was brilliant

god i must get a grip!!

I saw him acting in "Footloose" or whatever in the west end. I was surprised he was bald.

It's a shame he won't sing. I think there should be an EE Christmas special where they all dance and sing.

grin me too!
