TV star in town

Memory Lane: Waingroves auction
Memory Lane: Waingroves auction

Blockbusters TV show star Bob Holness was in Waingroves where he acted as auctioneer in this 1986 picture.

Bob, who also hosted TV’s Call My Bluff, died in January last year.

This picture was taken in September, 1986, when he was still presenting Blockbusters, the top TV quiz show for youngsters. He also had a successful radio career and would no doubt have drawn a big crowd to the auction at the time.

If you where there or met the star get in touch.
