Softness is a thing called... fatherhood

It would take  someone of the age of 55-plus to remember this scene along Commercial Road at the junction of Church Street.

NOSTALGIA: A Portsmouth scene unrecognisable today: Commercial Road in its pomp

Have your say

My daughter Ursula is getting married (at last) at St Mary’s Church, Portchester Castle, next Friday.

Being a bit of a career girl she has taken her time, but it looks like being quite an occasion.

You may have seen Ursula at some time without knowing it.

Back in 1978 when she was seven months old she appeared in a 40-second television advert for the fabric conditioner Comfort. You might remember the slogan: ‘Softness is a thing called Comfort’.

Forty seconds, yet I was at Shepperton Studios for four days. I kid you not.

Anyway, I just wanted to wish her and Stewart all the very best.
