What a Lovely War”
His TV appearances are numerous (over 500) ranging from ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ Play for Today’ ‘The Sweeney’ to ‘On the Buses’ ‘George & Mildred’ and ‘The 19th Hole with Eric Sykes.
This is his story: from panto to the small and big screen, John continues to entertain audiences around the world. You’ll laugh, you may cry a bit, but you won’t want to stop reading until the very last page.
