1989-2008: Fleet News Awards down the years

The Cabaret

The Fleet News Awards have attracted many stars in their ascendency - and one or two on the wane.

Rod Hull and Emu quickly established a pecking order over little Ronnie Corbett in 1995.

Bobby Davro was the only entertainer to receive a standing ovation and was forced to return to the stage for an encore.

He also returned for this year's event.

Other entertainers who have appeared over the years include Jim Davidson, Des O'Connor, Rory Bremner, Carol Smilie, the legend that is Jimmy 'Tarby' Tarbuck, plus the late, great Bob Monkhouse.

However, the one guest that caused the most mayhem was Mr Blobby, along with his sidekick Noel Edmonds.

The Winners

Black tie and posh forcks have been the staple wardrobe of the awards over the years, but these pictures all have clues which put them in a certain era.

A moustachioed Fleet News publisher Rob Barrowman and a young lady who looks like she's escaped from Bucks Fizz provided some glamour in the 1980's (the girl, that is, not Rob).

And congratulations to the man who in 1988 received his trophy in a white tuxedo, very James Bond!
