Huw who?

Yes, we know what you're probably thinking.

"Whatever happened to the actors who played Huw and Lenny in EastEnders?" you're probably thinking. "Y'know - the "comic" duo who once bestrode Albert Square like a particularly unfunny half-Welsh-half-not Colossus."

Well, wonder no more. We are delighted to report that Des Coleman, aka the Lenny one, has turned up as the new weatherman on the BBC's East Midlands Today.

Early reports suggests that Des has a slightly more lively style of presentation than the people of the East Midlands have hithero been accustomed, as you can see from this "comic" YouTube clip.

Smashing! But what news is there of Richard Elis, who played the Huw one? Frankly, there is none - which only goes to prove that you really can't have everything.

He's the 'Weather Rapper' - keep the moves coming Des and we'll keep watching!! :)

The future is bright no matter the weather the future weatherman should be like Des. We now only watch the weather if Des is on. Well done the BBC as they are normally living in the past.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
