TV Times - - Puzzles -

For­mer stand-up comic Bill Maynard drew on his own ex­pe­ri­ences for Oh No, It’s Sel­wyn Frog­gitt, ITV’S hit com­edy about a hope­lessly in­ept but well-mean­ing coun­cil work­man, who, as a re­sult of a joke, finds him­self ap­pointed as con­cert sec­re­tary at his lo­cal work­ing men’s club in York­shire.

‘Work­ing men’s clubs are mar­vel­lous places,’ the fu­ture Heart­beat star told us, ‘but the way they are run has to be seen to be be­lieved. On one oc­ca­sion, I was sum­moned to ap­pear be­fore the mem­bers’ com­mit­tee for pulling the han­dle of the one-armed ban­dit too hard and cen­sured as to my fu­ture con­duct!’

only Sel­wyn gave him­self the thumbs up
