Jammy Toast favourite Ricky Tomlinson, who played Jim Royle in the Royle Family, has claimed late Countdown presenter Richard Whiteley worked for the security services. Ricky made the bombshell claims after relaunching a pub in Chester where, back in 1972, he helped organise the first national building workers’ strike. Ricky, a former plasterer, and one of the so-called Shrewsbury pickets later faced a trial which saw him jailed. He now fronts an ongoing campaign to clear their names as alleged victims of a political conspiracy.

She was absolutely wonderful and amazing to work for. Kind, funny, witty. A true professional and one of the most generous people I ever worked with.”
