Those tabloid 'scoops' in short: Teddy Turner, who played Chalky White in Coronation Street, is dead; Des O'Connor is being lined up by CBS for a networked US chat show; Bob Carolgees is to fly to Croatia to entertain British troops; comedian and actor Mike Reid has bought a Spanish home next to Terry Wogan's; Murphy Brown, the show Dan Quayle branded immoral, won an Emmy; and Emma Sams revealed that she wears a flesh-coloured body- stocking during love scenes.
