Hello! It’s me… Or is it?

Happy New Year to you! Yeah, I know it’s February… er…Happy Chinese New Year?
Believing that an update was long over due I thought I would pop back on and say/type “hello”. So why have I been so quiet? Well I’ve been very busy (still am) since the start of January I hit the ground running and started work on Slaughterhouse Farm #4 the concluding issue to Hellbound Media’s fearsome four parter! What else have I been up to? Several other projects that I will reveal in more detail at a later date but it would seem that I have also been busy appearing on TV, odd really as I am fairly sure I haven’t (although I was on the radio back in January talking about Doctor Who). So what have I been on? As people keep spotting me (my doppelgängers, clones and future selves) I thought I would keep this post open and log all my supposed whereabouts and do my best to either confirm or deny that they are me... or not... 

Hello! It’s me… Or is it? No, no it's not.

1) 2014: Apparently I am the guy on the far right of this Channel Dave advert for Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled. This appearance has been pointed out to me several times since November (Kid was the first to note it) however, after much deliberation I have noted that this handsome chap (seems to be) drinking larger, I don’t. So ergo it’s not me. Unless- he is me from the future, taking part in the advert filmed in the past and looking at the glass wishing it was a rum and coke? 

2) 2016: Joe Scott spotted this one, The Dogs Trust newest advert, I was able to dismiss this one right away as you see this guy is made of wool, and I’m not. So ergo it’s not me. 

3) 2018: Bargain Hunt, Series 48: 1. Carmarthen broadcast on the 11th of September 2017. Thomas Finley thought this fellow might have been a clone of me…. I can certainly confirm that it isn’t me or my clone as neither of us Irish dance. Besides, Bargain Hunt didn't want me….
4) 2020: A Facebook meme, ok not directly me but my friend ‎Gremlin Bridge‎ posted this on my Facebook wall sparking rumors that I had a biopic in the works with Daniel Radcliffe playing me! I joked that it was true for a moment; however I must now confess that there is no biopic staring Daniel Radcliffe, he was in fact playing New York poet Allen Ginsberg in the 2013 movie Kill Your Darlings. We couldn't afford Daniel Radcliffe.

5) 2020: My friend Ceri Elaine Dean, was watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and she thinks she might have spotted me in the crowd just before they go into the factory... I don't remember this, so its either not me OR I haven't done it yet... this time travel malarkey can be confusing at times... 

Hello! It’s me… Or is it? Yes, yes it is.

ITV’s Dickinson’s Real Deal, 2008, Who is the chap closely studding the auction catalogue at the back and then bidding on some NatWest Pigs? Yes, that's right its me!

BBC Radio 2 Ken Bruce's show, 2011 not in person I grant you but that was my dedication he read out on the show (I didn't request Take That)

ITV'S Don't Ask Me Ask Britain, 2017, A live, interactive, comedy game show hosted by Alexander Armstrong in which celebrity teams, led by Jonathan Ross and Frank Skinner, try to second-guess the views of the nation... In the middle, second row? Yup! That's me!

S4C's Rhannu, 2019, a Welsh language game show- that's me in the middle I was actually in 7 of the 8 episodes. You can read a full and detailed account here ...I didn't win anything mind...  

Have you seen me on anything else? Do please let me know! Comment at the bottom of this post or e-mail Either way I’ll see you back on here very soon!

  1. Ach, it's you, AJ. Don't worry, we won't tell the taxman about your extra earnings. (You must have a double. "Thanks, I'll have a g&t!")

    1. Fair enough, ill pass though drink goes right through me (because I'm made of wool you see?) ;)
