Badge Friday: Craig McLachlan

Craig McLachlan Badge
The arrival of Australian soap Neighbours on BBC Television in the late 1980s not only unleashed a five nightly drama from the residents of Ramsay Street but also, for a while unleashed a legion of new pop stars on the British charts.

There was of course, Charlene (Kylie Minogue) and Scott (Jason Donovan) who topped the UK charts with several Stock, Aitken and Waterman hits including I Should Be So Lucky and Too Many Broken Hearts and even Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) got in on the act with his single Don't It Make You Feel Good?, though that didnt reach the dizzy heights of pop success.

However, Charlene's brother Henry (Craig McLachlan) did make a dent on the UK chart with his version of Mona with the band Check 1-2. Though hearing it again... doesn't Mona sound a lot like Bo Diddley?

This badge was given to me by my sister from the now defunct BIG! magazine.

I never wore it, but liked Mona enough to keep it. Craig went on to further success with the TV series Home and Away and Bugs and still keeps his hand in with the odd TV appearance...
