I just received a text telling me Christopher Biggins won the I'm a Celebrity... final!

Good for him!

I hope it won't mean he gets pulled into that 'Cabaret' clap-trap, though!

Wouldn't he make a fantastic King Arthur in Spamalot?

Not a huge fan of the show, but Biggins really came off well. He's the sort of person who would be a riot if you went out for a few drinks.

I did a panto with him years ago and during the run one night we went to somebodys digs after the show. When we all went to leave at 2am the heavens had opened with the most incedible snow storm. The place was 15 miles out of town and we were stuck there for 2 days and 2 cancelled shows! Biggins was so brilliant and funny sometimes we thought we would die laughing as he was getting more and more concerned about wasting away if all the food ran out!!!

Wasn't he in the running when the transfer was mooted a couple of years ago. At the time, there was much poo-pooing. (though not from you I'm sure)
