The woman on stage right from 1981 'Do The Hucklebuck' one hit wonders Coast To Coast, offsetting the lead singer's 'reanimated corpse of a young Swiss Toni' stage presence

That lead singer will be an early entry in the inevitable 'Obscure People That Fucking Annoy You' thread.

He fascinates me. He looks like a three way cross between Swiss Toni's corpse, Jack Nance in 'Eraserhead' and Arnold Rothstein from Boardwalk Empire. And that isn't even the bloke who's singing on the record. I'm dying for Chart Music to cover this fucker.

The shorter one of the two backing singers from 1982 'Heartache Avenue' one hit wonders The Maisonettes, offsetting the lead singer's 'sleazy debt collector' stage presence

From the old TOTP thread...
I love Heartache Avenue - it's got that sixties throwback thing Mari Wilson was also doing, but it's not as kitschy as her stuff was. On the subject of the backing singers (who were actually models hired for promo appearances who couldn't sing) I actually remember seeing this episode when it was originally broadcast as I had a massive crush on the shorter one.
(her name is Denise Ward, btw.)

He went on to become an actor, and while he was studying at drama school he shared a flat with Neil Morrisey and was responsible for introducing him to Martin Clunes. He died in October 2015.

Cockney Vic, who was one of the crew during the Johnny Vaughan years on The Big Breakfast. Special mention for when she dressed in tennis gear for the 'court with your pants down' segment.

Behnaz Akhgar. If she's not obscure enough for you, then a woman who was on an Irish Aldi advert in about 2015 (the one in the black dress).

Me too and I didn't even have to watch the clip first - so that makes her up there with the likes of Beyonce, I'd say (can someone adjust this reference for whoever is popular at the moment).

Heck, that's a bit racy for Schools and Colleges. You never got that sort of thing on Watch.

I've emailed Leo to see if he remembers.

Talking of children's programmes, one of my first threads on here was about your first celebrity crushes. For me this was (and indeed still is) Louise Hall-Taylor from Hickory House when I was about eight But nobody else seems to remember her. Even my contemporaries from the time. Serves her right I suppose for hanging around with a mop, a cushion and that heroin addict from Brookside.

YES! Absolutely. The scrunching of the nose and the biting of the lip. Blimey.

I think she's (Annelise Hesme) fairly well-known in France. Certainly famous enough to appear on chat shows. Here she is crying at some dogs: https://www.programme-tv.net/videos/autres/annelise-hesme-nina-eclate-en-sanglots-sur-le-plateau-de-vivement-dimanche_216348

Honestly, if you're a straight male then it's almost every woman in the summertime. And that's why we're a dangerous bunch who should be controlled.

The mid-to-late 90s golden age of Neighbours and Home & Away.

Annalise and her sister.
Lou Carpenter's daughter.

That brunette Karl Kennedy was knobbing (his younger receptionist, not Susan).
Susan Kennedy.
A blonde teacher who I can't remember the name of.
The lass who went out with that 10watt bulb Lance.
Lance's sister.
The wife of a copper in Home and Away, she had an annoying daughter called Gypsy.

The Boots in Nottingham used to have THE most beautiful woman working on the make-up counter.
Naturally beautiful too, not a bit of make-up, which made her stand out even more from her 'Ronald McDonald'ed up colleagues.

Such a shame that she sounded like Al Needham when she spoke...

Is Kate Gerbeau (/Sanderson) from Newsround obscure?  Man, I was obsessed with her.  She fucked that Krishnan Guru-Murthy you know.  I think she's been a presenter on armed forces TV or something since then, and heard that she's a bit of a right wing cunt which is why Guru-Murthy sacked her off.  Not sure how true that is.

If she's not obscure enough, then Katherine Rockhill, Mike Oldfield's acoustic pianist on the Tubular Bells 3, Millennium Bell and 35th anniversary tours.  I was coincidentally sat right opposite her on the front row for the TB3 and anniversary shows and she mesmerised me.  Truth be told I bought the TB3 live vid just for her.
