    Louis Theroux Weird Weekends: Quick Engagement

    "Lets Get Down To It Baby!!!" in Austin Powers voice.


    When Theroux says "How's it all been going?" the guy looks like a skinny MtD!!!
    (especially the sarcastic look on his face at the end of the sentence)

    Surely Bangkok only has one Phil???

    That's to differentiate between Singapore Phil and Saigon Phil.

    If anybody is wondering what happened to Lake Palmer, his Thai bride was not given a visa and never made it to the UK. Turns out she was already married to another Englishman. She ended up dumping Lake for a Belgian.

    ^^ That explains why she has got her own house and car.

    Mr Palmer must have been next in line to buy the land and the jewelery.

    LAKE PALMER: STAR OF BBC'S 'LOUIS THEROUX WEIRD WEEKENDS' - THAI BRIDES............................................ .................................................. ...... LAKE'S STORY: "People will think I'm a silly old man but I was lonely" The 60-year-old admits he was taken for a fool by an Asian beauty he married only three days after they met. She strung him along for eight months before dumping him for another rich European man, leaving him 12,000 in debt. Now Lake spends his days in bed, suffering from depression. A former Army captain who served in the Borders, he watches Coronation Street with a growing sense of fear and dread for a character he has come to empathise with. 'The plotline has brought it all back to me,' he said. 'I don't know if they will manage to fool poor old Fred but it certainly looks like it. 'I want to shout at the TV and tell him to use his head not his heart. 'I know he's only a soap character but what's happening to him just now is really affecting me.' Lake married Panom Yeesoon nicknamed Jad in a Buddhist ceremony in Thailand four years ago. He was convinced he had found a woman who would love and care for him for the rest of his life. When he returned home, he bombarded her with gifts, money and love letters. But eight months later, after failing to get a visa to come to Britain, she dumped him for someone else. Lake said: 'I know people will say I'm a silly old man but I am very lonely. Growing old on your own is frightening. 'I was just looking for someone who would give me companionship in my twilight years a bit like Fred.' A former offshore gas rig worker, Lake was forced to retire in 2000 due to ill health. He had been married twice before but neither relationship had lasted more than five years. He decided to seek a Thai bride through an introduction agency. It cost him 1385 and a further 800 to get to Bangkok, where he met Jad. She was 45 but looked much younger. 'She had a regal quality,' he said. 'She was slim and very well-dressed. I was swept off my feet.' On their second day together, he proposed. They married the following day in a hastily-arranged Buddhist ceremony. Luckily for him, Lake had forgotten his decree absolute and couldn't get the paperwork together for a legally-binding ceremony. So, what he went through was only a blessing. He slept with Jad on their wedding night and spent five more romantic days with her, before taking his pre-booked flight home. She pledged to follow him as soon as her visa came through. It was August 2000 and Lake thought they'd be together by Christmas. From his home in Great Yarmouth, he ran up a telephone bill of 1800 and sent her 1500 and lavish gifts. But she was refused a visa. It turned out she was still legally married to another Englishman. Ever hopeful, Lake continued to correspond and send money until April 2001, when she told him in a telephone call she had met a Belgian man and didn't want to know him any more. He said: 'I cried for six weeks and I've lost all my confidence. I only have my Army pension to live on. I think that's why she didn't want me. 'I've had a nervous breakdown and I'm still desperately lonely.'
    For anyone who watched it, you can't help thinking that this was inevitable...

    Where did they dredge Flatcap and the Deamweaver from? A bigger pair of gimps you couldn't hope to find.

    Theroux was having a field day with these clowns, and no wonder.

    I downed it & watched this yesterday, brilliant! although Lake Palmer was so desperate he made me want to puke on occasions. How the hell does Lois get these people to display their failings on a TV progam ? I have to say Lois is good.
