Before the internet, the Gazette had a circulation of 5, It's now down to 1, subscribers but it is also on sale in British shops like Tea and Sympathy in New York, and there's now the Walford Gazette website at www. Publishing the Gazette over the past 23 years has been a real labour of love for Larry. He's twice been made redundant from jobs but couldn't claim unemployment benefits because bureaucrats deemed that he had a job. A number of stars have been pictured reading it over the years - including Dot's evil son Nick Cotton, who is played by John Altman, another friend of Larry's.
Gretchen Franklin, who played Ethel, offered to sneak Larry onto the set when he was banned by producers in the s after running a story about another fan sneaking onto the set. Producers these days are friendlier - sending him this autographed road sign recently.

And while hanging around the EastEnders set, Larry has come across some real-life scoops. He spotted Hannah Waterman Laura Beale giving Ricky Groves Gary Hobbs a passionate kiss in her dressing room and realised they were a couple long before it officially came out. But as extra episodes were added every week in the UK, America only aired a one-hour omnibus.
