Classic 1970s sitcom Some Mothers Do ‘Ave Em comes to The Orchard Theatre, Dartford, next week in a stage version starring Joe Pasquale.

Joe plays the loveable, accident-prone Frank Spencer, a character made famous by Michael Crawford on TV.

Speaking about the accidents his character continuously finds himself in, Joe said: “We have a stunt coordinator and I’m doing it all – hanging by my ankles, chicken chasing and all sorts.

“But we’re not doing it as Michael’s version of Frank Spencer; that would be an insult to Michael.

“I’m putting my personality into it, which is how to make it believable. There’s a difference between child-like and childish and Frank isn’t childish; he believes in what he’s doing.”

Joe exploded onto screens in New Faces, and went on to win I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 14 years ago.

The show came to The Churchill Theatre, Bromley, in March and will run from Tuesday, May 8 to Saturday, May 12, at The Orchard.

He said: “It’s still set in the 70s, so you get the mustard wallpaper, tank tops and all the trimmings.

“It is so funny and you can take the whole family to see it.

“Apart from panto and maybe musicals there aren’t any theatre shows that people of all ages can enjoy together, but this is proper family comedy.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
