'Rocky' fan sees Time Warp again
Rob Bagall
Rob Bagnall's home is a shrine to the show
A Staffordshire man is preparing to see cult musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the 100th time.

Rob Bagnall's home in Leek, near Stoke-on-Trent, is a shrine to the show - which includes the hit song The Time Warp.

Mr Bagnall, whose favourite character is Frank n Furter, has booked front row seats for all eight performances at the Regent Theatre in Hanley next week.

Star of the show is Staffordshire-born Jonathan Wilkes, best friend of pop star Robbie Williams.

Mr Bagnall, "Rocky Rob" to his friends, will be attending each performance in full make up, fishnets and leathers.

"The neighbours are used to seeing me going to shows like this, so it's not really a problem," he said.

"I've now seen the live show 92 times and I'll be going to see it at the Regent in Hanley next week for every show of the week.

"So I'm going to see eight shows and that'll take me to my 100th show.

"But the film version I've seen nearly 300 times."
