IN THE KNOW WITH
NO rest for BATTEN HATCH lovely TISSY FROOP who, fresh from that business in Biddulph with NOTTY FRUME, is setting up a boutique in Alsager.
But that’s bound to ruffle feathers on the set of LOWER MIDDLE because just three weeks ago Tissy’s co- star and former friend DAPHERS HOOLE set up a fudge concession in Frodsham.
An on- set insider said: “Daphers is putting it about that Tissy’s only opening the shop because she set up the fudge stall. Daphers is calling Tissy a ‘ bit retail copycat’. It’s all quite bitchy, really.” WHO would have thought that BARRY SODO would go through with his promise and enter the PRIESTHOOD! Barry, a founder member of fist-scat jazz combo AMYL, was years for best known for running off to spend three years with an Albanian shit gang. But he “saw the light” in June after a spiritual experience in Bispham and has now entered a monastery near Widnes, where he’ll be known as BROTHER BARRY! Praise the Lord! GARRY MASH, who plays HUN GREAVES in UNDERLING, has reportedly been approached by a big shot Hollywood agent who fancies his chances in Tinseltown.
Garry, until last year the significant other of SPONGE drummer JULES BATTER, may be in the running to pay a Brit baddie in the latest instalment of the BASHED KIPPER franchise.
But there may be a little problem. Garry’s 2011 conviction for beastliness in a built- up area could cause problems getting a US work permit. MAGISTRATES in Chapel-en-le-Frith were faced with a bizarre case last week when BU-TOX lovely HATTIE a REEM was up for drink-driving – stolen hearse! The 22-year-old poppet – a former star of kids’ TV show JIMMY’S the LITTLE HELPERS – has gone off rails since that fling with bad-boy rocker KEITH SMACK. The latest run-in with the law came after a night on her favourite Bacardi and Tizer cocktail, I’m told. The case continues. BRACE yourself pop- pickers – the charts are about to be rocked as TEMPERANCE STREET actress KINSEY HALLIBURT has released her new single.
Kinsey, NIT DRAFT in the soap, has done a cover of EDDY GRANT’s 1988 anti- apartheid anthem GIVE ME HOPE, JOANNA.
Unfortunately, the unworldly actress seems to believe the song is something to do with AB FAB star JOANNA LUMLEY. DOH! DIVORCE: Hubby Stephen Belafonte
