So, we don't use the B word then?

Timothy Claypole Dobbin, an actor known for playing very angry men at the end of a short fuse, has revealed that he is not like that at all in real-life.

Dobbin, who takes his stage name from a character in Rent-a-Ghost and a character in Vanity Fair, told us: 'I always seem to get these roles, but in real life, I am very calm and laid-back'.

His wife, Valerie Dobbin, said, 'Timothy is one of the nicest men you could meet. When you mention Brexit though, I pity the fool who talks about Brexit in front of Timothy'.

Film director Mega Bigbucks said 'It is amazing how quickly Tim can change, but when you want a scene with him being angry we just have to show him a photo of Nigel Farage for level one anger, Boris Johnson for level two, and Jacob Rees-Mogg for level three anger. It also works for normal, non-actorly types as well. Who knew that?'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
