    Isn't it ironic that the song that made his name so well known wasn't actually sung by him, but by Peter Shelley who also wrote it.

     

    WHAT!!!!!

    Peter Shelley wrote, and recorded the song. It was only when it started to get popular that a 'face' was needed to show case it on TOTP ... that's where Bernard Jewry aka Shane Fenton aka Alvin Stardust came in! Shelley appeared as the original Alvin before Fenton was chosen to take the role on, as he didn't have the desire to carry on when the song became popular as he didn't want to BE his creation, Alvin.
