Plumbers & Marlon III

It's happened again. I get an email from Hot Straight Plumber. It is not asking if I can show him the joys of gaying, but instead contains the following phrase...

"From time to time we do work for celebrity/famous customers like yourself. We'd like to set up a celebrity/famous testimonials page on our website..."

I'm now so fat-headed that for half a second I thought, "Aw, bless, they've seen me interviewed on BBC Three. How kind of my public." And then I realised.

I've been mistaken for Marlon Dingle. Again.

Just for the record...


Clearly, the beard hasn't helped. Meanwhile, here are some other Dingles it *would* be nice to be mistaken for for a change...



But what of poor Mark Charnock, who plays Marlon, and is apparently lovely? What if rumours start circulating about how innocent tradesmen are lured round to Marlon Dingle's secret gay Inner London love nest? It'll be like Barrymore all over again...
