Comic strips, all the great magazines had comic strips! So ofcourse there was tonnes of them in Fast Forward! The hugely popular programme Grange Hill was one of them, following the goings on of Mr Griffith, Mr Bronson, Trevor Cleaver, Ziggy and the rest of the boys and girls from that Legendary school (I’m humming the theme tune now!) There was also a BBC TV Centre comic strip where the people in it were who was visiting the Beeb! Like the cast of Bread, Ed the Duck (remember him? With the funky green hair!) Andi Peters, Blue Peter.. The legend Gordon T Gopher had his very own comic strip, oh yes, Philip who?!! And there was The Pink Panther, Tom and Jerry! Plus Eastenders! Yes, the folk from Albert Square had their very own cartoon comic strip, with Ian, Pat, Frank, Cathy, even Dr Legg appeared sometimes!

Fast Forward always did great features of the stars of the day, they always kept up to date with who the children loved! A very popular girl was Sally Jensen aka Katie Landers from Neighbours, who along with her screen brother Todd were often in this mag! There is the gorgeous Bouncer too, everyone loved that dog! He even had his own story lines and once, a dream sequence too! I wonder if fame ever went to his head! Ha ha!!
Sally Jensen was 10 when she got her role. Over 60 other girls auditioned. Originally Katie and Todd were only suppose to do 13 weeks, but they were so popular their contracts were extended!
