Frinton? Bleedin' Frinton?
The Mile High Club? Frinton?
Love will literally be in the air for one lucky couple as a local English radio station offers a chance to join the mile high club over America.
Big L radio in the sleepy English coastal town of Frinton, some 60 miles northeast of London, is inviting couples for the next week to go on air and describe how they are growing old in a suitably disgraceful manner.
The winning couple, who will be selected by a panel of judges appointed by the radio station, will be flown to Atlanta, Georgia and put onboard a private plane equipped with champagne and a double bed to take to the air in amorous style.
I mean, Frinton?

Frinton's one thing, Tim but it's also cheating. You have to go to it with an Indonesian girl in the exit row of cattle class after the lights go out but during the film.

I'm very glad my parents and all their Frinton friends and neighbours are Radio 4 listeners.
(BTW to James, I know a lady who was nicknamed "Any Loo Will Do" because she preferred the toilet to the seat not just once but at least twice on different flights)

Well its better than most radio show prizes. The couple that win will be doing something rather neat it has to be said.

When Frinton was chock full of retirement homes the joke used to go, "Harwich for the Continent. Frinton for the Incontinent."
