Jonathan Ross, Morrissey, Tessie O'Shea, Terry Wogan...

I am a Ghost

I was "surfing the channels", as they say, about 20 minutes ago, and happened upon Friday Night With Jonathan Ross. JR was interviewing Sir Terry Wogan and from what I caught, TW has some DVD box set coming out. JR began doing a Morrissey impersonation, referring to him as "grumpy artist Morrissey" and talked about Morrissey watching some videos, perhaps it was one of those shows where people pick their favorite clips and comment upon them. He then mentioned Morrissey watching a video of Tessie O'Shea, also known as Two Ton Tessie, and Morrissey said "I haven't seen her in a while". JR said that if Wogan wanted, he could re-enact the whole of the Desert Island Discs show from the other week.

I can't access BBC iPlayer, so I'd love if someone who can could help me convince myself that I wasn't imagining things, and perhaps clarify my short-term recollections.

This is quite fascinating, if I may use that word...Frank Randle, Jimmy Clitheroe, George Formby, Diana Dors, Tessie O'Shea, Rusholme etc. etc.

Black Eyed

Isn't he gorgeous !!
Its ok, I Am A Ghost,you are not imagining it. Jonathan said to Terry Wogan something to the effect of having grumpy Morrissey "round" so I am presuming this took place in Jonathans house. We know that Morrissey has been round to his before so this could be from either a new visit or one of the previous ones. He said he played one edition of a very old British TV show called "Star Town" to him and that Moz said "put another one on". He said he went on to play him three and that when Tessie O'shea came on Moz said "havnt seen her in a while". She is of course long dead:(
