Over the last few years a multitude of big name companies have disappeared from our high streets, but which one do you think most people would like to see return? Walk down any local high street today and you may see a number of empty store fronts that once belonged to the likes of Littlewoods, Toys R Us and BHS. During the last ten years a number of our favourite shops have been lost but which closure do people feel the most strongly about? Well, according to a recent poll, Woolworths is the store that the nation misses the most and would like to have back on the high street. Woolies went into administration in 2009 but people still miss their Pick ‘n’ Mix sweets.

Craig Hayward is probably living what most men would consider to be the dream. Craig moved in with his girlfriend and her best mate last year and all three live together down in Kent. However, living with two girls is proving to be more than Craig had envisaged. He maintains that some of the shit he has seen is totally eye-opening! He was unaware of the fact that girl mates show each other every single text message they ever receive from everyone – including him!

The M62 is the highest motorway in Britain.

Ihave told before of my visits to Yorkshire – the land of the early to bed. My first visit was about five/six years ago when I discovered that everyone in Rippon is in bed by 8pm. At least this time we were driving there – which took just over an hour and a half – instead of the nine hours that National Express takes. So everything being equal, it shouldn’t be that bad and today we are going to a place in Bradford rather than Rippon. So Razzi and I set off driving through Liverpool and, of course, everything is normal but the further we venture down the M62 and the closer we get to Bradford, the more it seems like we are driving onto the set of The League of Gentlemen.

St Catherine’s Hospital prior to its demolition in 2010.

Today I would like to report a possible conspiracy which has haunted me for 57 years. As you will all have read, yesterday was my birthday. I was born in St Catherine’s Hospital[*] where the most hideous of mix-ups occurred that has affected my whole life. You see my Mummy – who we call Granny here on Jammy Toast because she is The Chimpton’s Granny – is thick, as you all know from some of the stories we have published over the years. I also have two sisters who are exactly the same; both as thick as Granny and who prattle-on on just about any subject you care to mention. On the other hand, I am a relatively intelligent person who – as the Chimpton will confirm – is quiet, noble and withdrawn. In fact, the complete opposite of Granny, Diane and Pauline. What I have always maintained is that all those years ago there was a mix-up at the hospital and a rather intelligent, good-looking family took Granny’s real son home and I was left to endure the family from hell.

The Chimpton and I were playing around on the internet last night – the details of which are definitely a story for another day, if ever – when we came across a rather interesting story. The headline stated that a suspicious stranger had been arrested loitering around a house following a complaint from the owner. When the arresting officer asked the guy for identification he said he didn’t have any but he was Bob Dylan – a likely story. As we all know, Bob likes to wear hoodies in public and hangs around empty houses in the middle of the night – yea, right. However, we are aware that Bob does like to stay inconspicuous and just maybe this time it had led to his detainment. The following is the story from the ABC News website and it goes like this

Yesterday morning our newsagent’s delivery of Daily Mirrors had gone astray and so we were left with no newspaper. Myself and some of the bears were sitting around my tablet reading the news on the BBC News website when we came across the following story. It has absolutely nothing to do with bears or any of the usual subject matter covered by Jammy Toast. There was just something about the story which fascinated us but also left us feeling upset and worried for both Kirsty and Zack. This is their story
