It was nice to hear Chesney talking about Schmeichel the other night, wasn't it? Quite touching I thought.

What about that annoying parrot that plagued Eileen? I don't remember his name.

When did Rita have a dog? I don't remember that at all.

I met Schmeichel once, or one of the dogs that played him, when walking into the studio where they film Jeremy Kyle at Granada. He was rather big! (the dog not the Jeremy).

How could you leave out Teresa the turkey?

As per Jesse the erstwhile cowboy's parrot was called John.

And Jack's pigeons.

Woops, I see Scarlett the pigeon on the list. I guess that would be Jack's.

Bet Lynch had an Alsatian for a short while, I was lucky enough to watch them filming with Bet, Percy Sugdon and the dog when I was at Granada Studios. All the visitors were ushered into the club(as it was then, now the surgery) at the end of the street) we were able to watch through the windows.
