Nice to see you, to see you Arrrrrrgh!

The World Health Council has revealed startling information regarding the discovery of a new strain of Tourette's syndrome.

Known as Leslie Crowther disease (LCD) after the first positively identified case, it is a disabling condition that is thought to affect up to 5% of the population.

Sufferers from LCD sub-consciously use catchphrases within normal speech. The mildest form being grade 1 (Bobby Ball) When during a normal conversation the phrase "Rock on Tommy" is inadvertently used.

Grade 2 (Kenneth Williams) sufferers may spontaneously blurb out "Oh-er Matron" while those with the severest form - Grade 3 (Bruce Forsyth)find it impossible to talk in anything but catchphrases.

The WHC has also found that the disease is spread by carriers, most of whom are in the entertainment industry, and has urged governments across the world to instigate mass culling.

Harry Enfield is due to be executed on Thursday.
