Last Update: 13 December 1998
On 23 September 1998, ITV's Teletext carried the following story:
Men Behaving Badly's Martin Clunes could soon be behaving outrageously.
He is being tipped as the possible star of a multi-million pound TV version of the famous Flashman books.
Other names in the frame to play the swashbuckling bedhopper are Sean Bean, Jo Fiennes and Nigel Havers.
An insider says "It's likely to be a BBC production shot in Turkey next year". Made by the Sharpe team, it's set to rival ITV's Hornblower epic.
This is a Rumour only.
