  • Trivia

  • Modley is well known for his catch phrase "Eeeeeeehh! Isn't it grand when you're daft?!" He made appearances on BBC TV's long running Old Time Music Hall series, The Good Old Days, often poking friendly fun at his home town Morecambe, famous for its huge sandy beaches, , with lines such as They're going mad in Morecambe , they've found sand ! - and - Sometimes when the tide goes out, it doesn't bother coming back ! He also performed a well loved bus driver/ conductor routine, conversing with comical imaginary passengers.
  • The final issue of the UK's Comic Cuts magazine featured a cartoon of Modley on its cover. This was the magazine's last and 3,006th edition, a world record until it was beaten by The Dandy's 3,007th edition in July 1999.
