Didn't understand a word....are there any subtitles !
You gotta love the accent! Then again, when my parents came to visit me in the UK, I sat them down in front of the telly to watch Eastenders. They couldn't understand a word of that, either - but they did really like Ar'fur (back in the days when he was on the show).

He's Marmite, I know. No sweat mate, just thought he might be near your manor🤣

Well he was born the wrong side of the river but moved to Wimbledon , which is where I went to high school.....died not that far away also, but I think he was a bit of a mess by then.

What it is, is, there was a programme on earlier on SLY Arts about his life and where he lived, and, as an ignorant Brummie, whos only been to football grounds in London, I presumed you'd know him🤣🤣, no, I mean it showed parts of London, Its like Slade(y) you know.

Years ago,when I went to America, a bloke stopped me when he heard my accent, and said "where in the UK are from boy", I said Birmingham, He said....."oh I've got a cousin who lives there, I wonder if you know him":ROFLMAO:
