That was Neighbours, not Home and Away.

Peter Purves in EastEnders was mentioned earlier. He does turn up as himself in The Office, in a specially-shot corporate training video.

Is that the pornographic version? ;)

Seeing "The Office" mentioned above makes me think - would "Extras" count, or are those appearances technically fictionalised versions of the real people?

Technically, all the ones in the thread are, I suppose, if they are speaking lines written for them.

A few nights ago on Talking Pictures TV, "The Beauty Jungle" was shown, amongst the cast was Sid James as himself, but didn't actually speak any lines, rather oddly (same with Joe Brown) both played judges.

It's strange but I can type 60 words per minute perfectly on the PC but typing with one finger on the iPad results in missing words. I'm convinced it must be the iPads fault. :-)
