    Can anyone identify the man in this photo? It's from an old Benny Hill sketch, and I'm guessing he was perhaps a television personality?
    Thanks for any assistance. :)

    And Benny Hill once spoofed "Sale of the Century", appearing as "Nicholas Parcels". The spoof name put me in mind of the phrase, "a parcel of tripe", i.e. rubbish.

    Very funny as himself in the Comic Strip Presents film Mr Jolly Lives Next Door with Rik Mayall, Ade Edmondson and Peter Cook - "We've got to take out Nicholas Parsons!"

    Nicholas is also well known & loved for hosting "Just a Minute" on BBC Radio 4 and the World Service for the last few hundred years
