Yoo Hoo! Ms. Dimmock!

Charlie Dimmock is only 44 and, while her tumbling pre-Raphaelite curls are touched with grey, she is youthful, still good-looking and full of the infectious ‘joie de vivre’ that brought her such success on screen.

This, remember, is a woman whose 2000 calendar outsold the one produced by underwear model Caprice and was notably described as ‘horticultural Viagra’.
She prefers a more self-deprecating gloss.

‘Plenty of grandfathers got me in their Christmas stocking that year,’ she laughs.

For all her fame, the truth is Charlie has never really belonged to the celebrity world.

Today, she is back at home, alone, with no man on the scene – and she admits she despairs of ever finding one

Blimey, what is it with the men of England? Since when did big redheads go out of style?

I would offer myself but there would have to be a trade in along the line…..

  1. What Curmudgeon said. I see a few women on Facebook who are hitting 30 and single, whom I remember in univeristy as turning their nose up at the blokes who were interested (i.e. me). When a girl is 20 she’s not interested in the geeky engineering undergraduate, she’s more interested in the bloke who grows his own weed. By the time she hits 26 and realises she’s been hanging around losers, the engineering graduates are no longer on the market. Women are far too picky when they’re young, leaving them somewhat desperate when they’re older.

    That’s my theory anyway. 🙂

    Ahem, I had sworn off arts students by the time I was 17.

    That and I’ve sat at a few weddings wondering “what does she see in him?”

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    She cheated on her first partner. With crew on her show. She subsequently took up with another crew member on her show.

    Suggesting 1. a lack of loyalty and 2. a lack of any discernment.

    I think she is a honey, or was, but the fact is she is hardly showing the sort of characteristics that are going to motivate anyone for much beyond a quick fuck. The loyalty thing I could over look, but I prefer women who show some standards. The sound check guy? Please.
