Does anyone actually believe him? Anyway even it's true, does anyone really need to know?...It seems like a pathetic competition with these elderly soap star men as to who had the most women in their lives. The real test is who can keep one. Who's next to real their crap lol.

They are making themselves look ridiculous, I think.
I read this and think: STD much? I'm sure they are thinking they are giving off a whole other vibe! Cool cats, blahhhh!

LOL I thought the same. A 76 year old man boasting about how many women he's slept with? REALLY? Some people just never grow older in the mind .

Good for Briggs that he's slept with 1000 women. I doubt he has to be honest . Regardless, it's nothing to be proud about as STD does spring to mind and I say that not to be disrespectful.

What happened to the days where celebrities kept these things private? Nowadays, they seem to want to reveal everything about their private lives to prove how interesting and cool they are .

Don't get me wrong I like Johnny Briggs, but that confession was just bizarre IMO . Personally, I'd rather be known as a guy who was committed and faithful in my relationships, rather than be known as a bed-hopper .

It brought to mind the long running feud between Ken and Mike! I wonder if they were as competitive off screen?

Can you imagine if it was female stars fighting over who'd 'had' the most men? Rita V Emily. Some men are pathetic.

He did appear in some sex films though like Au Pair Girls, but then so did Young Mr grace off Are you being served and of all people, John Le Mesurier.

A man boasting about his sexual conquests is one thing, but boasting about them if he's married at the time isn't something you want to shout about! Isn't that serial adultery?

what made me laugh was he was seemingly saying how he was shocked that Bill Roach came out with such a statement, and then ended up saying he's probably slept with more than him. It made him come across as more desperate than Roach. Maybe he needs the work and it's the only way he can get in the limelight?

Its true what I said in the open relationships thread though, the majority of people are bed hopping like mad, you only need to read a newspaper problem page or watch jeremy kyle. I don't think I know any happy couples in a 100% devoted relationship anymore

Surely he's retired?

I love it, Barlow vs. Baldwin reignited

I think Briggs is only messing around, I bet the two are still in regular contact

I am sure that Johnny and Bill are friends in real life, I have seen them appearing in videos and photos (out of character) and seem to get along alright. You are right, Briggs is probably just joking around. He did this a year or two ago when claiming he should come back from the dead as Mike Baldwin, of course people where jumping to conclusions and going over the top.

The man does come across as an absolute arse - I loved the character of Mike Baldwin, but Briggs seems to be a not nice person.

I guess the hunger for fame is greater than their morals
Sleeping with loads of women (or men) isn't an achievement! That's the easy part!

The STD checkups must get tiresome though
