Old pals' act.

MICHAEL and Cheryl Barrymore landed in hot water last August after the Sunday Mirror revealed, right, that they had connived to get family and friends on Strike It Lucky.

One contestant in line for the pounds 5,000 jackpot turned out to be Cheryl's uncle. He had to pretend he didn't know the gameshow host.

The show's principal scriptwriter, Ricky Greene, said: "It was a joke. Michael had to act like he didn't know the bloke, asking him, 'What's your name?' and 'Where are you from?'"

Barrymore's close pal John Davis, who later became his lover, also appeared on the show.
