Never mind the Sugababes...: Chas & Dave split

Some things are just unthinkable on their own. Marks without Spencer. Huntley without Palmer. Keith Harris without his lips moving. Morrissey without the air of wounded persecution.

And Chas without Dave.

But we're going to have to get used to it, as Dave Peacock is retiring from showbiz. He's calling it a day following his wife's death in July, but Chas Hodges is going to carry on to fulfil all the outstanding commitments. He's going to play as 'Chas & His Band', as 'Chas & ' just doesn't have the same ring to it.

It's unlikely we'll see the likes of Chas & Dave again in our lifetimes.
