Children's entertainment and television star 'Bouncing Billy Baldwin' (real name William Bathhurst) was a hugely popular TV personality for a very brief time in the early 1970s with his catchphrase "There she goes!" but has been completley forgotten since and died three years ago. One year after his death it was announced that he had amassed a large fortune, amounting to several million pounds, during his brief period of fame.
Just under two years ago police began to investigate a large number of allegations of abuse and 'inappropriate behaviour' which they had suddenly received from alleged victims who had been children when 'Bouncing Billy's' popularity was at its height. However the police have now ceased their investigation because none of the alleged victims now wishes to pursue their complaints. "For some reason we cannot fathom" said a police spokesman "All the complaints were suddenly dropped at the beginning of this year."
In January 2013 it was announced by administrators of his estate that Billy Bladwin had made a series of disastrous property investments in the years after his brief but lucrative television career, in which he lost virtually all his money. The value of his estate was currently valued at just over £28.
