When did you last see William Gaunt

I've seen the actor William Gaunt twice in the last two days - yesterday at the Tate Modern in a pair of crocs and today in Crouch End wearing normal shoes in the rain. I've never seen him before but I do well remember him from "The Champions" and the sit-com which featured Martin Clunes as is son, where he was permanantly pissed in a shed with Michael Sharvell-Martin and which was always appended with the announcement that "William Gaunt is appearing in the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, in "When did you last see your trousers."

Quite why William was the only man allowed an advert on the stringent BBC I'll never know. Maybe those powers he picked up in Shangri La were still working for him.
