To mark the royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton, Sue Townsend wrote an exclusive Adrian Mole story for the Observer in 2011. [9] Alpha, Griffith and Tamzin Palmer are the children of Christian and Cassandra. They are afraid of their mother. Christian escapes from her by taking himself and the children to visit his mother in Wigan, leaving Adrian home alone with Cassandra. They are very advanced children; Griffith, only five, has a reading age of thirteen. Norman is the man in the flat next door to Adrian and Bianca's. He works as a fire-eater at a circus and, much to Adrian's chagrin, practises his act in their shared bathroom. He is annoyed at the sound the couple emit during their lovemaking.

Gary Milksop is the extremely sensitive, effeminate and over-the-top member of the LRWG. He is the author of an epic (unfinished) experimental novel that he has been working on for fifteen years: his first experience of eating a Hobnob. The other members of the group are kinder to him, as Gary cries if he gets criticism.Adrian Albert Mole is born 2 April, with the first book establishing the year as 1967. He grows up with his parents in the city of Leicester; before moving to Ashby-de-la-Zouch in England's East Midlands. Adrian's family are largely unskilled working class/ lower middle class. He is an only child until the age of 15, when his half-brother Brett and half-sister Rosie are born. Adrian is not gifted academically but does tolerably well at school, though he does sometimes suffer the ire of headmaster "Pop-Eye" Scruton. Though not especially popular he has a small circle of friends and even a girlfriend Pandora Braithwaite (whose parents Ivan and Tania are affluent Trotskyites). At one point he falls into bad company with Barry Kent and his gang, who had bullied him in earlier years, but generally he keeps out of trouble. Throughout all this Adrian sees himself as an "intellectual" and a thwarted "Great Writer". [1]

Gian took time off from rehearsals to catch up on the news in the Mercury. Several copies of the paper were specially printed for the TV series in 1985. I am an intellectual, but at the same time I am not very clever.", "None of the teachers at school have noticed that I am an intellectual. They will be sorry when I am famous." A new stage musical adaptation by Jake Brunger and Pippa Cleary opened at Leicester's Curve in March 2015. Townsend had been working with the writers on the project at the time of her death. [10]Gladys Fordingbridge is the elderly regular host of the group. She is the only woman. Her living room is cluttered with cat hairs and photographs of distant relatives. Her poems consist entirely of sub- Pam Ayres cat poems, one of which, entitled 'Naughty Paws', managed to rhyme ' Whiskas' with 'discus'. When her poems are eventually published it gives Adrian an excuse to expel her from the group as it is 'for amateurs only'. Gladys happily leaves the club. Cassandra Palmer is the shaven-headed wife of Christian Palmer. She has just returned from filming a documentary on mutilation in Los Angeles, where she learns to function on the cutting edge of politically correct. Her return is not gleefully celebrated in the Palmer household. She removed the bolts from the bathroom door and changed the title of Winnie the Pooh to Winnie the Shit. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in law at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, Mangan took a year out to care for his mother, Mary, who died of colon cancer at age 45. Weeks after her death, he auditioned for the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and went on to study there for three years. The series followed the plot of the book fairly closely and was set around 1997, starting in May 1997 when Tony Blair and New Labour won the general election. Mangan was born in Ponders End, in Enfield, north London, to Irish parents. [4] He has two sisters, Anita and Lisa. [5]

Adrian’s dad George was far from a perfect role model for his son and was played with great aplomb by established actor Stephen Moore. Unlike his consistently unemployed character, Stephen was rarely out of work, appearing on both stage and screen from the 1970s until his death in 2019 at the age of 81. Mrs. Claricoates is the school receptionist. In The Lost Diaries, she has progressed to teaching the reception class.Written by the late great Leicester author Sue Townsend, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13¾ was published on October 7, 1982 and has become a part of British culture. Adrian may have been fictional but he felt real to many, growing up in the very real Saffron Lane area of Leicester before moving to the equally real Ashby.

Amanda is Susan Mole's wife and Adrian's aunt by marriage. It is stated that she and Susan married shortly before the beginning of Cappuccino Years and that Adrian attended their wedding reception in the officers' social club at Holloway Prison.

Having been suspended for a week Adrian's considered worth of Barry Kent's gang. Spending his evenings loitering outside a Chinese takeaway, he thinks he might be tasting real life at last; but is it a double life? And if he were to run away... would anyone notice?
