Bread actor Giles Watling running as Conservative candidate in Clacton

12 September 2014 3:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Actor Giles Watling has been chosen as the Conservative candidate in the Clacton by-election.

Watling is best known for playing Oswald in the 1980s sitcom Bread, and is now a Tory councillor.

He was selected at an open primary in constituency, ahead of local councillor Sue Lissimore.

The Clacton by-election is being held after sitting Tory MP Douglas Carswell defected to Ukip.

The vote will be held on October 9.

When asked by BBC News if an actor could be trusted as an MP, Watling said: "Of course," adding that actors have "been around for thousands of years".

His Bread character Oswald was a vicar who eventually married Aveline, the only daughter of the Roman Catholic Boswell family in Liverpool.

Oswald and Aveline's wedding episode was seen by 21 million viewers at the time in 1988.

Watling has also had roles in How's Your Father?, Grange Hill and 'Allo 'Allo. »

He’s done some polling, met with Democratic operatives, and is said to be seriously considering a run to unseat the incumbent Republican. He certainly has the name recognition.

NHL star Henrik Lundqvist is going to be the new face and body of underwear company Bread & Boxers. Hopefully they don’t shoot on the ice, because, you know, shrinkage.

Rep. Aaron Schock may not be gay, but his Instagram account certainly is.

The Minnesota Vikings have responded to Chris Kluwe’s accusations that he was fired for supporting marriage equality so vocally. “The Minnesota Vikings were made aware of Chris Kluwe’s allegations for the first time today. »
