Look who it is...

The other night I was lucky enough to stumble upon the one and only Roger Walker (of Rainbow fame) as he played some brilliant banjo at The Sussex Arms in Twickenham, Greater London. And what a lovely guy he is - not only did he pose for a photo, he asked to be friends on Facebook (you can find him here).

Roger has worked extensively in television, from the 70s onwards - you may remember him for his role as a presenter/musician on kids' TV classics Rainbow (1976-1981) and Bodger and Badger (1989), or as Kipper in Big Deal (1984-1986), and even his role as Bunny in Eldorado (1992-1993). His acting is still going strong, too, with Roger more recently bagging guest parts in Heartbeat, Doc Martin, EastEnders and Holby City. Nothing beats Rainbow in our eyes though!

Spotted a star from the 70s, 80s or 90s? Let us know what they're up to now - we're always interested.
