Press clippings

Unfunny chirpy, cheeky Cockney Jim Davidson was a huge ITV star in the late 70s and 1980s. They gave him two sitcoms: Up the Elephant and Round the Castle (1983-85) in which he played chirpy, cheeky, Cockney, chauffeur Jim London and its sequel Home, James (1987-90). Both were about as funny as a wet weekend in Wigan.
