The BBC’s web magazine has a lovely article on ‘the art of innuendo’ following Humphrey Lyttleton’s death last week. Humph was a true genius and I was privileged to see him on stage late last year for the recording of the Xmas ISIHAC show. He will be greatly missed – especially by the long-suffering Samantha:

“Samantha is the show’s fictional scorer, and has an active social life. She once trained opera singers – “having seen what she did to the baritone, the director is keen to see what she might do for a tenor,” as Lyttelton put it – while her baking instructor “popped her bread rolls straight into his mouth and he’s promised to try her muffin next week”. Of a builder, “she was pleased to see his tender won, but was startled when it suddenly grew to twice its size”.
