Property in Kensington and Chelsea is some of the most expensive property in the whole of the UK. Parts of the borough have always had fairly exclusive property – Kensington, South Kensington and Chelsea – whilst other areas have seen property prices spiral due to relatively recent regeneration – Notting Hill, for one.
Kensington Palace Gardens, a road stretching between Notting Hill Gate and Kensington High Street and adjacent to Kensington Gardens, contains some amazingly expensive houses that are the homes of some very wealthy residents! The road is therefore, unsurprisingly, nicknamed ” Billionaires’ Row”. Many of the houses are former embassies, although some are still used as embassies or ambassadors’ residences.
Houses in Upper Phillimore Gardens – a few streets north of Kensington High Street – are also known to be incredibly expensive; a house there sold for £80 million in early 2008. The house used to be a girls’ primary school – and I sure know, as I used to be a pupil there! I smile when I think of the new owners lounging around in their high tech cinema room (or whatever), in the same space where I used to have disgusting school dinners…

A bit random but I am contacting you because I am looking for some great characters who might be interested in being on TV? We are basically casting for John Bishop’s new show called ‘John Bishop’s Only Joking’ for Sky One and I am looking for some big characters who are good at telling jokes and delivering gags.
We are now approaching the casting deadline and so far we have no-one representing the aristocratic, high end and well brilliantly posh members of Britain who are always a huge hit with audiences. So I am contacting you in the hope that you might be able to recommend anyone or circulate this around for us? We would really love to hear from anyone you think might fit the bill.
The way that the show will work is that John and various other comedians will tell jokes and gags in the studio. Throughout each 30 minute episode we will insert video clips of celebrities and members of the general public all telling their favourite jokes.
Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
Please do let me know if this is OK and if you need any more information from me?
