This success guaranteed him more TV and incidentally brought him to the attention of David Redwick one of our top comedy writers, who remembering the quality of his singing voice, waited 25 years, (as you do), and then asked him to appear in the current series of 'Love Soup' the romantic comedy on BBC1.
Famous for his 'marathon running ostrich' Bernie is in great demand for both cabaret, theatre tours and especially pantomime, and, as we speak, is preparing to star in 'Snow White' at the Watersmeet Theatre in Rickmansworth.
His appearance on the Video of 'Amarillo' with Peter Kay and Tony Christie meant he was on our screens again as the song went to number one and stayed there for several weeks.
Bernie revealed the range of his talents once again, and presented his own afternoon show on BBC Radio Sheffield. However busy he will always find time to take to the skies piloting his Microlight Aircraft over his country home in North Derbyshire.
