    Did the 6pm BBC news realise they stopped The Fonz in the street in Richmond and asked his views on Heathrow expansion?! #random

    We've gone back and checked the live feed - and yes, that is indeed Henry Winkler. Complete with shopping bag.

    He's in London right now because he's doing panto in Richmond, playing Captain Hook in Peter Pan.

    The BBC's James Landale also confirmed that it was The Fonz.

    In case you were just watching BBC News, that was indeed the Fonz who gave me his views on Heathrow airport...
