“I remember Jimmy said, ‘Here’s a glass of wine.’ ”
The triplets played an curious part in the original fall-out between the two stars.

He promptly swerved on to the kerb and nearly hit a lamppost.
Rodney realised his innocent anecdote may have overstepped the mark so made the phone call that was his last-ever communication with Bolam."
What am I missing here ? What bit of that is offensive or insulting to Bolam ? The only thing I can think of is that it implied that Bewes was 'more of a man' if he managed to create triplets compared to Bolam's one child - but even then I'm stretching the limits of my imagination. It would be pretty juvenile to take offence to that IMO.
If it's not that, then what is it about the above that Bolam took such offence to that he never spoke to Bewes again for the rest of his life, despite Bewes's repeated attempts to make friends again ?
