Jilted Gail meets Jilted John


Lovely moment from Corrie in January 1979 when it was still a must-watch. Gail goes to meet a boy at the cinema but he doesn’t turn up. A lad approaches her and says he’s been stood up too – would she like to go out with him instead? She gives him short shrift. The rejected chap, played by Graham Fellows, is Jilted John, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iN45OjB-cCU/ who had a hit with the song of the same name and went on to become the brilliant comic creation John Shuttleworth.
