In a shock move, BBC TV Execs are having a re-think about Pauline Fowler's departure from Eastenders.
Viewers last saw Pauline face down in the snow on Christmas day and seemingly brown bread. However after the show finished, the BBC's switchboard was jammed by some kind of fault that developed and insiders are saying that top brass are interpreting this as a sign that fans don't want to see the loveable misery guts leaving the doomfest.
Miss Brahms' agent is believed to be in emergency talks with the show's producers to broker deal that will see Pauline rising on the third day and becoming an even bigger cult than she is currently. Yes cult!
The pussy fixated Mrs. Slocombe, who is reported to already earn £75,000 a minute, can expect to see her salary to at least double after this development.
A BBC big noise told The Spoof, in response to the suggestion that this was a gross waste of licence payer's money:
"Not at all. We believe that this represents good value for money and that it will see the show's ratings go through the roof"
Ken Barlow is believed to be miffed and is pushing scriptwriters for a storyline that will see him become the King of Manchester.
