I recall that a few of the Rainbow lot were down my local at the height of their fame some years ago.
Contrary to his television personality, Bungle was a complete ar**hole, excessively drunk and trying to start a fight with anyone in his vicinity. He also rudely propositioning the young barmaid, after which she fled clearly distraught. No-one was brave enough to say anything at the time as he was a pretty hefty bloke and cut an intimidating presence.
On the other hand Zippy was a complete gentleman, generally chatty with everyone and happy to sign autographs.
