Francis HIS LIFE!!!
This part of my web-site is dedicatted
and is all about LEIGH FRANCIS or AVID MERRON off of off Bo''
Selecta and BIG BROTHER. Here's is some things you might like
to no about him that I have found out and place on here for you
to check out. His real name is Leigh Francis, the "AVID MERRON"
name is just the joke one he uses to confuse and compensake celebrities
and other famous folks off of off the TV and FILM, and MUSIC too.
"This is a picture
of him as Avid. Behind him is when he plays Michael Jackson OR
MJ as they call him some-times, the other one is The Monkey. Leigh
likes to where masks for playing these funny charactors"
HERES SOME STUFF
Leigh Francis (born May 30, 1973) is a comedian from
Leeds, England. He married Jill Carter on Halloween, 2003.
Francis was "discovered" by television presenter Davina
McCall, who got him regular appearances on MTV UK. This kick-started
his television career.
In postmodern fashion, Leigh Francis conducts nearly every interview
and arrives at every celebrity function in his character guise
of Avid Merrion. He is rarely seen without being in character,
and many have trouble understanding that Avid Merrion is a fictional
creation and so Francis' name means very little in popular discourse.
He did conduct an interview as himself for The Frank Skinner Show.
Francis also plays many other celebrities, using comical masks
and inappropriate accents, in sketches in his series Bo' Selecta!.
His focus changed to character of "The Bear" (a rude
teddy bear) rather than Avid Merrion, as part of the new series
A Bear's Tail. This follows the first use of Francis' real name
at the head of the titles for the 2004 Christmas special.
Avid Merrion, Leigh's fictional character creation, is most famously
known from the British television comedy sketch show, Bo' Selecta!
as a Celabrity Stalker.
Born in the small town of Arachnipus near Transylvania, Romania
to a father who was a Dracula impersonator, Avid grew up to be
the "number one super fan, here in the world". He came
to England because of "something to do with the police".
Merrion lived in his London flat for a long time with his dead
mother slouched in one cupboard and Craig Phillips from TV's Big
Brother chained up in another. His only other friend was Ozzy,
a refugee who used to operate a TV printing business in the flat
beneath Avid's. Avid claims, in a distinct eastern-european accent,
"I don't know what he is!".
With his slurred and broken English, ginger mullet, peculiar sexual
fetishes and obsession with showbiz figureheads, he made one scary
stalker of celebrities. He famously wears a neck brace, allegedly
due to an encounter with Liza Tarbuck which resulted in her punching
him in the throat.
Merrion won the 1997 Best Newcomer Award in the 13th Annual British
Academy of Adult Movies and Entertainment for his performances
in Baker's Dozen and Red and Ready.
Avid spends most of his time harassing celebrities at functions
such as book signings or movie premiers. He doesn't see it as
harassment though but rather affectionate worship. Due to his
hanging around at these events, he became noticed by the media
during the third series of Big Brother on Channel 4 after he repeatedly
attempted to break into the house to get closer to his television
After this, he was allowed to play his own part in the comedy
series Bo' Selecta!. By the third season of this show, his newly
elevated status in pop culture allowed him to talk one-on-one
with celebrities rather than stalking them so his spots on Bo'
Selecta! were transformed into his own chat show.
Avid has appeared on many other TV shows including Big Brother's
Little Brother and Friday Night with Jonathan Ross.
"This is Leigh
again but this time this is Leigh as the Avid charactor (see above)."
