A couple of nights ago, Elaine was mentioning a conversation she’d had with a work colleague (during their break of course) concerning good-looking men in soap opera. It actually followed on from a chat we’d had whilst watching East-enders on Monday...
Back in the office, one vote had been cast in favour of Max Branning (Jake Wood) - “awight Tan”. Shaven-headed ginger men aren’t Elaine’s thing (nor mine I hasten to add), but Max does have one fan lurking somewhere near Middlesbrough - “awight Lauren... Abs...” a fact about which I’m sure he’ll be suitably chuffed.
Whilst at work, Elaine’s choice lay between Joey Branning (David Witts) or Scott Maslen, who plays Jack, yet another of the Branning clan. Understandably when she was at home, she took the correct option of picking Dr Legg, thereby sparing my particularly sensitive feelings!
The best-looking female member of the Eastenders cast? Well personality is obviously massively important, but assuming that she's lovely in real life, I must admit that Rita Simons is very attractive...
Anyway, when Elaine admitted to fancying some bloke called “Barlow”, I presumed the conversation had drifted onto Corrie and she was pining for Ken... but actually Miranda was on telly and the object of her desire was actually Gary Barlow.
Best of luck love!!! It’s a long queue... and I think even I’m in front of you!!!
My mind drifted back to when we saw Take That at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light a couple of years ago. I remember just watching Elaine as she sang and did the moves to Never Forget. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen her so happy... it was a lovely memory that almost brought a tear to my eye.
Gary (or Gaz as I call him when we text) made a cameo appearance in a fantastic episode of Miranda, which included having his face proverbially “snogged off” by the show’s star (writer’s privilege). Miranda is a wonderful comedy... brilliantly observed and equally brilliantly written. My favourite character is Stevie (played by Sarah Hadland), perfectly crafted and performed and in due deference etc... “What have you done today to make you feel proud..?”
Well Heather, I wrote a blog. All good wishes, kind regards.
All my own work... almost.
