The voice of chlamydia

WTF: Weekly Trivia File

  • Highlight of the Chortle Awards? Surely the erudite Nicholas Parsons saying ‘fuck’. Twice.

  • Now he’s landed his own BBC Three sketch show, the plum roles are flooding in for Mathew Horne. The Gavin and Stacy star is the voice of chlamydia in a new sexual health campaign in Coventry.

  • Soulless American stand-up:

  • Rik Mayall has slashed the house of his six-bedroom, four-bathroom Notting Hill home by £500,000 – but at £5.5million has still not found any buyers.

  • From Metro: ‘Which comedian so enjoyed their stint in a bath of beans for charity that they now do it as a birthday treat each year? The worrying part is that they seem to get a sexual thrill from it…’

  • Jessica Hynes used to be in a double act with her Spaced co-star Katy Carmichael called the Liz Hurleys: ‘Mancunian trannies who would dress up as Liz Hurley with socks down our pants talking about our hairy fannies,’ she said. ‘It was slightly funny.’

  • Billy Connolly owns more than 100 pairs of shoes.
