Lunching with a member of Her Majesty's Press earlier, I was, er, treated to the following information concerning convicted Kentish kiddie-fiddler and former SlimFast advertiser Barry Bethel.
In search of some juicy local goss on the 66 year old, who was done last week for sexually assaulting a girl after promising to make her a star, the aforementioned hackette called a mate who had worked with Bethel at the now defunct Thanet Local Radio. 'Oh yes, I remember him,' reminisced the mate. 'He used to wear white trousers.'
'Were they tight?' inquired the newshound, scribbling on her jotter.
'Tight? You could see his pubes!' came the response.
Needless to say the state of Bethel's broccoli was subsequently deemed unfit for publication by the editor.
