Cliff versus Marty row makes headline news. Marty Wilde’s agent Larry Parnes complains to Jack Good that Cliff Richard is getting the best songs to sing and receiving more publicity than Marty Wilde. He once again threatens to withdraw Marty from the series after the 18th October show. Jack Good suspected Parnes of being greedy, as his stable of stars already dominated the series. So Jack cheerfully released Marty who had wanted to remain, leaving Cliff solely as the main star attraction.

Parnes was to quickly regret the decision but although a reconciliation was eventually reached between the two men, Marty was to remain off air for over three and a half months, not returning to “Oh Boy!”  until 7th February 1959.
