Cringing Cult of Celebrity
  • Well, he's not famous now! If you remember a children's tv series around 1979 called Dick Turpin (played by Richard O'Sullivan from Man About the House and Robin's Nest fame), the guy who played his partner in crime, Swiftnick, was called Michael Deeks, and he was rumoured to be from Maidenhead. Wonder where he is now, what he's doing, and how old he is?! Does he still have as much blonde, curly hair as he had then?
