The last time I was at Oscar Stretch’s Sandown home it was to view his amazing Christmas lights. At that time he had his snow machine in full swing. I returned to his home on Monday morning and this time the real snow was falling. He is all set to make a return to JH Meets on Sunday March 24. He first came up back in 1990, as one of my early guests with his old mate (well not always on the football field) Nobby Nash.

Chose the perfect day on Thursday to drive to Eastbourne to interview TV and movie actor Jimi Mistry, who is about to star in the new Tuesday night BBC1 drama The Syndicate. His past successes include playing Dr Fred Fonseca in EastEnders for over a year and making around 20 movies, including East is East, The Guru, 2012 and Blood Diamond. He was also in TV series like Nearly Famous and Strike Back. Millions remember him for Strictly Come Dancing. Now he is engaged to his partner in that series, Flavia Cacace.
