                                                                 GINA KEER.
                                                  The page 3 model brought a touch of glamour to the Top of the Pops studio.


                                              Gina's first appearance 8/6/1983. She came to dance.



                                                            A light in the dark.
 


                                                             The tantalising Gina Keer.



                                                        Later on, dancing in the Moonlight.




A varied appearance on the 14/7/83.  A literal interpretation of 'Everyday I Write The Book', in the background for 'Wherever I Lay My Hat..' and then on the intro for 'Come Live With Me'.



                                                                            Enjoying the Sunshine.



                                                       What's Mike Read saying? I don't know - it's all Double Dutch to me.





                                                Gina's in her posh frock for 'Give It Up's last week at the top.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------













                                                But now, who's gonna dance with me?





----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


                                                             It's 1985 and Gina's in the house!






                                                     "I didn't release Phil was so small!"




                                   You're the one for me.




                                      Gina always creates a storm when she appears on The Show.



                                                                On the podium for 'Body Rock'.      

       

                                       Gina lets her hair down, before applying some 'Lipstick, Powder and Paint'.        



                                       Be careful you don't get that scarf Trapped underfoot, Gina!



                                        It's a Pleasure to see you on the Xmas Playout.




----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1986

                                                It's Torture not seeing episodes like these on BBC4.



                                     Due to this insufferable situation, I can't Zoom in and give a better quality picture.

Thanks to Ryan for originally posting the above screencap. She's gone rather quiet recently, so I didn't have any to post!







                                                                        Feel the need in Ling.

                 Former Hills Angel and model - LiNDSAY NEIL.
1983

                                     Lindsay's first appearance was on the 13/10/1983 show.

                     One of  the  crowd participants to the excruciating 'Superman' (not a patch on 'Do The Conga'!).






                                       Say, say, say - isn't that Lindsay hitting the dancefloor?



                                                           With Jenny and Andy.



                                                   Lindsay could dance to this Over and Over.



                                                  In with the Common People.





                                            Look Straight Ahead for more Lindsay pictures.



                                                               Christmas Day 1983.

Two stalwarts of the Top of the Pops studio are PINKY AND TONY. They first appeared back in 1980 as Kelly Marie's backing dancers and have continued as cheerleaders and have had responsibilty for the warm-ups, staging and choreography. In 1984 they teamed up with Hazell Dean for her two top 10 hits.


                                         'Searchin' (I Gotta Find a Man)






 Pinky is situated to the left of the picture and Tony to the right of the screen.

          Accompaning Nick Heyward's 'Warning Sign'.



                                              Pinky during Eugene Wilde's 'Personality'.

Fans of Ling Tai may be pleased to hear she pops up again on Thursday night's edition.

And just like Ant and Dec, Pinky is usually positioned on the left, and Tony on the right, during their routines.

Not sure if this is the right thread to post this on. But is this picture unique i wonder ? Is this the only time on TOTPs that a future member of a TOTPs dance troupe can be seen applauding a dance routine performed by the troupe that she later joins.

Sandy Borne appreciating the quite superb `Murphy's Law` on 24th June 1982. Just thinking more about Sandy, she is even more unique that she probably went from a mere audience member, to a cheerleader, to fully fledged Zoo member and then back to a cheerleader. Quite remarkable.


Now the challenge is to find Sandy (pre 24/06/82) or another Zoo member applauding a Zoo routine before that person joined.

Though i have just remembered a conversation i had with Doc in which he recalled seeing Sue on a previous show before she made her dancing debut. I doubt though that Sue was applauding Pans People at the time as strangely they (Pans) did not appear in the studio the two shows prior to dancing to `Summer Breeze`, with one of the editions after Louise's departure containing a repeat only.

She appeared prior to the Pan's People performance of There's A Ghost In My House. I'm guessing that she left with Pan's after the performance rather than staying in the studio. If I had a choice of one show to be rediscovered, I'd pick that one.

Must have been quite a frustration for novice Sue having the two `Pans free` weeks then before `Summer Breeze` and of course even more of a frustration with the big strike a couple of weeks after that.
