This seems pretty serious....
'He's a 1950's criminal'
I guess you need to have watched Shooting Stars to get that.
Thought it was "1950s binman"
a very bitter man is the Lamaar.
I wonder what this is all about.
(Allegedly) attacking his ex I think
Seems to be for assaulting - and holding prisoner - an ex-girlfriend, at his home.
I guess it's too early to officially call him a cunt but, y'know...
For me he had one moment of glory, taking on Shabba Ranks on The Word in 1992 and quite fearlessly (“That’s absolute crap and you know it”) destroying him for saying gays should be crucified.
The Word - Mark Lamarr and Shabba Ranks
It was all downhill from there.
Who is that fucking idiot woman co-presenting him?
A fucking idiot indeed. I think Dani Behr, though better check that so toxic it might be to mix her up with someone else.
Edit, yes it’s Dani Behr.
I've disliked him since, well, forever. Took my eye off the ball when he started working on Radio2 (?) - never heard his show but heard a couple of clips of him talking over the years where he seemed to have lost his sneery wanker tone. Right back to detesting him now with these allegations.
Bitter and insecure was always the vibe I got. An insufferable TV host.
I looked her up online. Wish I hadn't.
She was one of the utterly terrible Faith Hope and Charity who gave us this 'classic'
The straight Bananarama that Europe imposed on us.
What a hideous CV
Don’t forget her dwarf mating show “The Littlest Groom”.
Maybe she should have made “The Nadir of Scum - a biographical documentary.”
ROFL. I don't really need a CV any more however I'd be sorely tempted to pinch that last line. Clearly her publicist is a better comedian than Lamarr.
God's Jukebox, I really loved that show.
This, however, is proper shit
I once saw Mark Lamarr at a gig in London and went up to him and said "I bet you get sick and tired of people coming up to you and saying hello to you" and he said "yes I do"
I had no idea she'd been in a 'band' - that's fkn awful - as was Dani Dares
It feels a bit... not ideal that a thread about someone being arrested for violence against a woman would immediately descend into a mass slagging of his female colleague of a quarter of a century ago.
My thoughts exactly. She’s got absolutely nothing to do with this.
Well, it was inevitable once that video clip went up. I wasn't aware that Lamarr had been charged with violence against a woman. Where did you see that?
18 or so with producers shouting in her ear.

I’ve met him and spent time in his company.
He struck me as a deeply unpleasant person on every occasion.
I’m not surprised by this news.
