Anyway, having too much time on my hands at the moment means that I can look through the annuls of history and find out what other monumental facts happened on January 12th alongside Vic's prolonged and painful departure from her mum's birth canal....
1959 - Berry Gordy creates the Motown Record Label in Detroit (and I will be forever grateful for giving us Diana Ross & the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye et al)
1976 - Crime writer Agatha Christie dies (it was the spurned lesbian lover on a Saga cruise using poison dispensed from a secret compartment within her Argos gold sovereign ring into Agatha's Malibu and Coke)
2001 - Sven Goran Ericsson starts the England job (the ladies at the FA start leg waxing regimes. Ulrika Jonson seen humming ABBA tracks and buying new underwear in Agent Provocateur)
2003 - Bee Gee Maurice Gibb dies from coronary problems during a stomach op (Barry Gibb steadfastly refused to consider the proposed funeral tribute music of 'Staying Alive' and 'How Can You Mend a Broken Heart'. He's always been a bit touchy since that time Clive Anderson called him a tosser)
Famous people sharing Vic's birthday:-
Lady Heather Mills - Charity fundraiser and ex-fan of the Beatles
Melanie C - Sporty Spicegirl
Joe Frazier - boxer famous for 'the Thrilla in Manila' with Ali.
