Alley Cat, 13 April 1962

Jean Owen (later Samantha Jones) of the Vernons: “JBJ was my very first television show and it was Lover Please that they were listening to and we just had to sit there smiling. Carole Carr who was a singer was on the panel and Gilbert Harding too. They put us behind a panel so the actual panel didn’t know that we were there. We thought it might be a Miss but it was a Hit. I had had visions of Gilbert Harding saying dreadful things about it but he was fine. It was genuine, we came in late and they definitely didn’t know we were there.”
