cheryl baker

this advert is often found in underground trains and it’s a bit weird i think. Cheryl Baker is a D list celebrity in the UK and has been for 25 years. Her little bit of ‘proper’ fame was being in Bucks Fizz doing the Eurovision skirt thing back in 1981.
However, i’d say she’s of Bucks Fizz fame, or formerly of Buck Fizz. The wording on this advert suggests she’s known as someone who used to be famous for once having been in a famous band.
it’s a shame of fame that these days you can be famous for once having been famous for being famous. 3rd generation fame in the same person if you will.
