Great actor ,don't know why this even news nowadays,
Always remember him being on the Mrs Merton show with Bernard Manning.
Manning was disgusting that night,ridiculing Wilson all through the show, put me off Manning from that day.what a horrible man,
felt very sorry for Wilson that night,
Wilson held his own well - as did Aherne, and did Manning in certain (very limited) respects. I think a fair enough hearing was had for all (ie Manning certainly got the rebukes where deserved) on that now legendary occasion - legendary in the sense that such a gathering simply wouldn't be permitted to occur on air again! It's hard to conceptualise that was the late 90s and so supposedly 'wasn't that long ago', but yet just seems like such a totally and so far removed era to what we're used to now.
