The chim­ney pot

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Bond's World -

For­mer Corona­tion Street soap leg­end, Julie Goodyear, most no­tably re­mem­bered for play­ing brassy land­lady Bet Lynch was of­fered a place on I’m A Celebrity – but turned it down. Some would hazard a guess that she didn’t fancy sleep­ing in a jun­gle, but the truth has been re­vealed. The com­pul­sive smoker found out that she wouldn’t be able to smoke on the 23-hour plane jour­ney over. The 75 year old is said to smoke 100 cig­a­rettes a day and her ad­dic­tion is so bad that she couldn’t con­tem­plate such a trip with­out reg­u­lar cig­a­rette breaks. She did of­fer to go over by boat, but pro­duc­ers re­jected the of­fer af­ter learn­ing it would take 40 days and a hefty bud­get.
