News of the contest to become the next chancellor of Cambridge University has tended to focus on the David and Goliath battle between Lord Sainsbury and local shopkeeper Abdul Arain. But this unlikely face-off could be disrupted by the unexpected participation of the leading beard-wearer Brian Blessed. A Facebook campaign by students has resulted in the vocally endowed actor garnering the required 50 nominations to run – and, reports the Cambridge Tab, he has consented to his inclusion on the ballot. This is not the first time that marginally-less-hilarious-than-they-think undergraduates, made giddy by their eclectic DVD collections, have afforded Blessed the status of a campus folk hero. In January a motion was passed by York University's student union, mandating the institution to rename one of its study spaces "The Brian Blessed Centre for Quiet Study".

Starring as the swaggering, leather jacket-wearing heartthrob Kenickie, alongside John Travolta, in the film version of the hit musical Grease brought Jeff Conaway global fame. Cinema audiences were quick to learn of Kenickie's two biggest loves – fast motors and fast women – in an early scene where he has sex in the back of his car with his girlfriend, Rizzo (Stockard Channing). Kenickie is a leading light in the high-school T-Birds gang of greasers and sidekick to Danny Zuko (Travolta), whose rekindling of a summer romance with Sandy Olsen (Olivia Newton-John) is the central story in the 1978 film. Conaway had already played Danny in the stage musical on Broadway but had to make way on screen for Travolta, who was hot property following his starring role in the film Saturday Night Fever.
