I know many members will find this a shocking revelation, but was it possible that the original Crossroads' cook Shooey McPhee was gay?

Also, didn't they have a gay cook in XR2 or 3? Or was it a grumpy Scottish bloke?

I'm not sure, but I have deep suspicions about Hugh & Meg Mortimer's wedding chauffeur.

Or did the late Miss Turle ador la Shouxie pastry?

They may have met their demise by consuming eachother!



PS bring back the Brownlows, Arthur, Kath and their awful daughter (was it Glenda? and partner Kevin). Too long ago.

Sadly Pamela Vezey who played Mrs Brownlow died from cancer in 1992.

Glenda indeed - Arthur was of course innocent whatever Iris lied

Now Miss Berta and Miss Babs - definitely wore comfortable shoes no matter what Mr Clifford said and that was a lavender marriage to Mr Kenneth !

Too much information Fizz..........
Was it a perm or just naturally very curly hair?

Don't know. He was fit, that's all I was interested in.

The actor of Shughie might be, but there is certainly episodes where he's chasing Avis up to get funky in the store room.

I stand corrected on the spelling of the XR's cook's name:

Shughie McFee was played by Angus Lennie, born in 1930 and I gather still with us.

Glenda always carried a hideous yellow plastic handbag!

And do you remember her pudding faced brother Ron? Didn't he end up marrying cousin Iris?

I wish they'd bring Crossroads back again.
I enjoyed the first time it was on and when they brough it back it was good too.
Much better than all the repeats and shows about antiques.

I always though Carlos was the original chef but apparently the very first 'head cook' was Vi Blundell.

According to this Shughie McFee didn't appear until 1972.
