Nuts in May.


I only have to hear the name Candice-Marie, and I'm immediately whisked away into a world of cringe-invoking fantasy. You really have to feel so sorry for Ray. Enjoy.

    1. I put this up because I'm sure I saw Roger Sloman on Eastenders (Lady M watches it).

    2. And I was pretty sure that Candice is a young Alison Steadman, so I Googled to make sure.

  2. One of Mike Leigh's best. Candice Marie, those two words will always mean nothing but that Play for Today.

  3. You were never sure what you were going to get with Mike Leigh ! Didn't his character have trouble with his r's and call her Candice Mawie ? Still laughing at the thought of it, after all these years. Thanks for the memory, Cro.

    2. I thought I was right. As I walked past I said to Lady M "Isn't that the chap who was in Nuts in May?".

      She said she didn't know what I was talking about.

    1. You know Alison Steadman, surely. I'm quite surprised that you seem not to know the TV play. It's been talked about ever since.

  6. That captured the average 1970s male folk singer's attitude to every one else perfectly.

  9. Had to laugh at this...if we see a similar couple now, years on from the program, we say 'there goes a Candice Marie'...life needs them, lol.
