Cliff Richard had been billed to appear on “Oh Boy!” this evening but due to a mix up with dates was unable to appear on the show. They appeared at the Rialto, York, instead, which was Cliff’s penultimate booking on the Kalin Twins tour which had begun on the 5th October. Terry Dene deputized at short notice for Cliff, and he rehearsed and appeared in the show within 24 hours of being asked.

Marty Wilde makes his final 'Oh Boy!' appearance for three and a half months, not returning until 7th February 1959.
