    I saw Nigel Planer last night, sat at a table in John Lewis's restaurant at Cribbs Causeway near Bristol. He doesn't look so young these days, but then neither do I.

    Probably the best stuff he's ever done is the Master Class series (think that's what it was called). The one where he's teaching the young actors how to do the TV weather report, side splitting! He had a whole section on the importance of the length of the pause when saying, "...in the next...........24 hours."

    I guess he must get quite annoyed when people go 'oh, he was in The Young Ones....'

    I was very discrete, no pointing and staring or hissing at the missus, mostly in case I was wrong. It could've been any old bloke who's always being mistaken for Nigel Planer.

    I expect he's quite bitter that he was always in the shadow of two people, one of whom is now the voice of the Andrex puppy and the other of whom plays a talking stick of reconstituted lips and peanuts.

    Last time I saw Brucie was in Chelsea near Sloane Sq. in about 1986. But he had a chauffeur to park his car and it was a Rolls then. He's come down in the world isn't he?
