Martin Compston has shown that he is not someone to be messed with in real life, as well as on screen in Line Of Duty.

"My child is not a lab rat." The words are from a 25-year-old woman, Susan, and they're in reference to her three-year-old twin girls. While she speaks to DW, her eyes flicker between them as they begin to meander away — first together, then in different directions — in a large, open park in Bonn, Germany. "It just hasn't been tested enough," Susan insists. "A few months [of testing]? That isn't safe." So no, she says. Her kids are not getting vaccinated against COVID-19. And she isn't, either. Her husband had to, and she didn't like that. At a nearby playground, another mother, who does not want to share her name, feels very differently. "I'd vaccinate them.

Yeah, I think they made the right call on that one. “But the merchandising is still something that is very big for these characters, they’ve had their own Happy Meals.” The Mr Men and Little Miss books are not just a cultural phenomenon, they are a major money-spinner, as the Little Britain and Great British Bake Off star discovered. They are a hit formula first dreamt up when … [Read more...] about Matt Lucas shocked after finding out Mr Men characters came close to be used on condoms
