Possibly my biggest SOS of a crush, I wanted to have the same lip shape as 80s kids TV presenter Timmy Mallett. Wacky, vivid and possibly the next on the BBC inspection list, this oddball and his foam friend was an unavoidable watch come Saturday mornings, and ultimately a crush for me waiting to happen. Ashamed? Nah. Though I am probably a psychologists dream subject.

He was an officer in a Gurkha regiment but became famous for being a children's presenter and artist on television shows such as Vision On, Playbox, Take Hart and Hartbeat, often accompanied by Morph. He also created the Blue Peter ship logo.
