But today I've read some shocking news:
Actor Jeff Stewart, who plays PC Reg Hollis in ITV drama The Bill, has been treated in hospital after being told he was sacked.Goodness me, it seems that The Bill isn't a documentary after all. Apparently they're all actors!
Press reports suggested the 52-year-old cut his wrists after being informed.
But back to "Reg":
His character also "lives life by a very strong moral code and hates dishonesty or injustice", it says.So that's why Reg had to go. Not for him the fashionable PC (!) concerns about diversity and all that rubbish. No, Reg just wants to catch criminals. How quaintly old-fashioned.
I've an idea. Let Reg return to Sun Hill for a few weeks and then make him Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. You know it makes sense.
