Thanks to Arrow Books for (previous) permission to copy the illustration and sketch from Jasper Carrott’s book.

Thanks also goes to Bob Davis himself (now an OBE), alias Jasper Carrott, for the inspiration for this project – and for many years of laughter.

As an aside, and a small claim to fame, I was on stage with him (at the Liverpool Empire) during his Beat the Carrott tour.
