image for Noel Edmonds "Gotcha" Goes Too Far Claims DLT
DLT - Victim

Former Radio 1 DJ Dave Lee Travis, who was found not guilty earlier this month of 12 counts of indecent assault believes that fellow former DJ and long term friend Noel Edmonds went to far with his latest "Gotcha" stunt made famous during Edmond's Saturday night TV show "Noel's House Party" which ran on the BBC from 1991 to 1999 and introduced the UK to the rather ridiculously unfunny 'Mr Blobby' who was also arrested and cleared of sex crimes in 2005.

Speaking outside court, Mr Travis said "That bloody Noel Edmonds - where is he? Where's my 'gotcha' statue?"

Originally called the "Gotcha Oscars" until the threat of legal action from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who really shouldn't have given a fuck, hidden camera practical jokes were played on celebrities. Notable victims were Barbara Windsor, Carol Vorderman, Jill Dando, (that one went a little bit too far also) Travis, Richard Whiteley, Eddie Large, Samantha Janus, Yvette Fielding, Status Quo, and other various celebrities we are lucky are no longer on our TV screens.

"Sometimes he just goes to far," grinned the hairy cornflake, after his acquittal. Raising a fist in the air, and in mock annoyance he shouted "Bloody Edmonds!" before heading home shaking his head and giggling.

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