    Prawn cocktail served in half an avocado. The very height of sophistication.

    Also any even halfway hetero male Brit born before about 1985 who claims he wasn't madly in love with Jet is a goddamned liar.

    Aww, that's kind of sad. I hope she got to do one for fun about how to knock someone over with a pugil stick without seriously hurting them.

    She once came to give a talk at my high school about healthy eating and thinking positive and stuff like that. I felt wistful.

    It's like, who would fancy Jet from Gladiators when you had Belinda Carlisle, Susanne Hoffs, DJ Rap, Kim Bassinger or Merlene Ottey to lust after? Ridiculous.

    Not contrarian at all, just standards.

    Although I guess by the late '90s she'd handed on the crown to Kelly Brook.

    PHWOAR. Although sadly that's a hit and a miss - my parents were much too middle-class to allow a cereal as unhealthy as Frosties, so they were an occasional treat when staying over with a mate.
