Absolute Radio Hometime host Geoff Lloyd has discovered himself in the latest edition of iconic children’s comic The Beano as a 40th birthday surprise.
The discovery came as a complete surprise to Geoff who had the editor of The Beano, Michael Stirling on his Absolute Radio show as a guest last year. Lloyd thought his co-host Annabel Port and producer Gareth Evans were behind the surprise but they were none-the wiser.
Lloyd noticed a tweet from a listener yesterday saying that someone in The Beano looked like him. Geoff proceeded to buy himself a copy and found a cartoon version of himself interviewing Dennis the Menace’s Dad before being promptly water-bombed by Dennis.
Geoff said: “I’m in The Beano! THE ACTUAL BEANO! My Nan used to buy the comic for me every week as a boy, so I am beyond giddy. You can’t imagine how excited I was to see myself being water-bombed by Dennis the Menace”.
