Charlie Catchpole's column: Bottom line on streakers.

YOU didn't need half an hour to answer the question posed by The Streakers (Wednesday ITV): "What induces perfectly ordinary people to take off their clothes and run naked in front of a crowd of thousands, not to mention the TV cameras that will immortalise their cheeky dashes?"


a) They're drunks,

b) They're show-offs,

c) They're drunken show-offs.

Not to mention the TV cameras indeed! The TV cameras are the whole point.

Apart from the great and still gorgeous Erica Roe (who endearingly said that when she was driven to Twickenham police station "they took my particulars down") we saw some grim sights.

The rear view of Tracy Sergeant, as she streaked at the World Indoor Bowls championships, resembled two warthogs fighting in a pink sack.

"Not everyone's got the guts," said Tracy.

No, love. Nor the arse.
