You might have been forgiven for checking that today wasn't April 1st. Just when you think that the 'You Couldn't Make It Up' tap had run dry, another story drips out.
We knew that Limpid Optic had split from his long-term fiancee Sian Lloyd - perhaps he'd had enough of a cold front from the west overnight. (Odd that the BBC chooses the word 'flamboyant' to descrive Lembit - geeky would be better, but no matter).
That could only be trumped by the revelation that he's now been seen out and about squiring one of the Cheeky Girls.
