Mick the Marmeliser and Hamish McDiddy from Knotty Ash. Interestingly I recently learned that Ken Dodd didn't in fact invent the Diddy Men, they were well known in Knotty Ash before Ken took them on tour. Arthur Askey mentioned the Diddy Men long before Doddy did. This is according to Wikepedia which is never wrong! I paid £4 the pair from a car boot at Lowdham in Nottinghamshire a couple of years ago (2014/15?).



Hamish McDiddy has now been sold to a collector of Diddymen and he now has a full set. Mick is now alone in the cabinet.
