Dexter Fletcher: the Unknown Story.
Dexter Fletcher’s ‘Hood’.
Dexter Fletcher is in the news.
Jamie Oliver threw a star-studded gala screening for his friend Dexter Fletcher’s latest movie (Sunshine On Leith), as the actor-turned-director revealed that the TV chef was the inspiration behind his decision to make a musical film.
The startling but true history behind Dexter Fletcher can now be told.
As a lad Dexter grew up in Tewkesbury Terrace, North London (N11).
With his brothers, Graham and Steve, he was part of the Bounds Green ‘Bounders’.
This gang, with echoes of the Peaky Blinders and the Chicago Mob, also drew on the support of the sinister leader of Tendance Coatesy, and other desperate figures.
Though much younger than the rest of the crew “Dex” was the most feared.
Bottles of pop from Burridges, and tins of light ale from the The Ranelagh would mysteriously disappear.
On the ‘front line’ on The Green the Bounders ruled.
Dexter’s early career is lightly fictionalised in his first film, Bugsy Malone.
His often cited “genuine Cockney accent”, which Coatesy, as his neighbour (2 doors down) also boasts of, is a relic of this hard life growing up in the Bounds Green ‘hood’.
We are willing to sell more details to the press for any reasonable offer.
