As speculation continues to build around the exact date Theresa May will get dumped by loyal party colleagues as her catastrophic handling of Brexit continues, there is at least some good news for the beleaguered PM. Her husband Philip has been snapped up by a top showbiz looky-likey agency as an Arthur Askey double.
Michael Regan, owner of The Dead Spit Of… Talent Agency was cock-a-hoop with his latest signing and is expecting big things for them both. ‘I see it this way’, he told Variety, ‘Phil’s a proper ringer for Arthur and once he learns the songs, you know, Busy Bee, I wanna Banana and all them others, then he adds in all the cheeky-chappie patter, he’ll be knocking them bandy on the club circuit and at corporates. Trust me I’ll make him even more dosh than he’s currently raking in by showing all them toffs how to fiddle their books and dodge their taxes!’
Meanwhile Celebrity Juice funny man, Keith Lemon, is said to be watching developments closely, as now with Arthur Askey around again to play the role of the most irritating arsehole trying to hog the limelight on panel shows, Lemon fears that his own career could be adversely affected.
