I've only just seen this thread so missed the Les Dawson one - but (luckily) I'm just in time to record the Tommy Cooper one on my Freeview+ box

The receptionist where I work used to work in a busy newsagents in London and one magical day she actually served the legendary Tommy Cooper! :)

Good to see Tommy Cooper on the cover of the latest Radio Times in all four versions (as a T-shirt but it still counts...)

My mate asked me this evening to use your good orifices offices to ask if anyone knows of a Tommy Cooper sketch when he is in a sports shop waiting to be served and the head comes off a mannequin. When somebody arrives Tommy stands behind the dummy to replace the head.

Sorry that's all I've got.
