    The guy who did the Roses ads was Norman Vaughan, and he, indeed, was one of those who took over from Bob. The other was a very distinctive comedian, especially for the 70s. I believe he got his start on TV in The Comedians.

    Oh yeah, I think I remember him. Did he have a cloth cap? Kenny something?

    The answer is Charlie Williams. He had a fascinating life, first playing professional football before becoming a stand-up comedian. He seemed to have trouble holding The Golden Shot together, but that wasn't any reflection on him imo, anyone following the superb Bob Monkhouse would have his work cut out. He was very popular for a while and even had his own comic strip in Shiver and Shake.

    Now, I know this one as that film was on TV not too long ago, and I was surprised to see that the guy who played Albert Tatlock was in it, Jack Howarth was the actor's name.

    Staying with Coronation Street, which long-serving Street actor got a thumping from Michael Caine in Get Carter? Just to be clear, the actor is now deceased and I believe was in Get Carter before joining the Street.

    Boys captain was Lionel Blair and girls captain was Una Stubbs, later replaced by the lovely Lisa Goddard. I can't remember if Blair was ever replaced.

    Ok, Lisa Goddard starred in a sitcom that was a follow-up to one that had John Alderton and Pauline Collins as the leads. Can you name both sitcoms?
