Kenny Everett would have been 75 on Christmas Day. His costar Cleo Rocos dropped into the Oldie office to record her memories of the great comedian and their engagement. She also brought some delicious Margaritas.

Look our for her lovely article about Kenny in the next Oldie, out in January. As she movingly writes, 'I loved Kenny with all my everything and more.'
