Simon first plays "Every Loser Wins" in episode 165 of EastEnders after leaving The Banned, performing it alone on a piano in The Queen Victoria pub.

Glenn] Hoddle can make or break a game but I don’t think he can handle the problems of the attitude. On release the song was a success spending three weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart in October and November 1986, becoming the second biggest-selling single in the UK that year (after "Don't Leave Me This Way" by The Communards). Every Loser Wins and Something Outa Nothing were actually co-written by Stewart and Bradley James and ‘EastEnders’ theme tune composer Simon May.

Records that aren't in picture sleeves will either be in a company sleeve or a generic plain sleeve. It’s all very well being the best in the league but he’s got his work cut out against world-class defenders.

For this re-recording, she teamed up with Mike Berry, her co-star in the sitcom ‘Are You Being Served?

Nick Berry (born April 16, 1963 in Woodford, Essex) is an English television actor best known for his roles as Simon 'Wicksy' Wicks in EastEnders (1985–90), PC (later Sgt) Nick Rowan in Heartbeat (1992–98) and Mike Nicholls in Harbour Lights (1999). Corrie did have a 60s pop star tho – in the script followed by a minor chart hit that nobody remembers.They suggested to Ross Davidson that he make a record with his real-life partner and co-star Shirley Cheriton (Debbie Wilkins); she declined so instead it was decided to cut a solo single. Meanwhile, Down Under, a soap had just started airing, one that would go on to dominate our charts during the final few years of this decade.

Another novelty on top of the UK charts… Unless I’m forgetting someone obvious, Nick Berry becomes the first singer of dubious talent to top the charts thanks to starring in a popular soap opera.
