Mental Mickey hits the big time on Top Of The Pops.

Mickey was the lead vocalist of "A Bunch of Wallies". One time, Rodney kept doing the "1 2 3 4"'s and by the second time Mickey shouted at Rodney. Derek "Del Boy" Trotter came in and tried to bait Mickey by calling him Mental Mickey and asking if he had been in Rampton. Mickey said no but Broadmoor.

Del became their manager. Del even booked them to play at The Shamrock Club for St Patrick's Night. Due to their performance on the night, a fight broke out and then a riot. Del, Rodney and everyone except Mickey managed to escape unharmed. Del almost got a table on his head though. Del left Mental Mickey to carry on fighting with the other patrons. Rodney was soon kicked out of the band and during the argument, Mickey tried to bite Rodney's ear off. Del threatened to do Mickey in when Rodney said this. Rodney says none of them wanted to play at The Shamrock Club anyway. Del was convinced that A Bunch Of Wallies would never make it big and told Rodney to forget about the band and move on.

But a week later, Del saw them on Top Of The Pops with "Boys Will Be Boys". Del is horrified. When Rodney found out, he was annoyed at Del for always saying they could not make it when they did. Rodney and Mickey parted ways for good.
