In the Universe Challenge special, Bamber Gascoigne stated that Oasis, Bill Clinton, Madonna and Rupert Murdoch had all revealed at some point to be fans of Red Dwarf. Can anybody here actually provide a source to confirm this?
Wasn’t Elton John meant to have been a fan as well? I remember Matt Lucas playing him in a sketch and there was a joke about his rider including a complete set of Red Dwarf videos including Smeg Ups. Something like that. I feel as though I’d already heard he was a fan before that though. (And I’m not thinking of the Rock Profile where he lists owning all the Blackadders on video as one of his ambitions, or the Little Britain sketch where the hypnotist is selling both Red Dwarf and Blackadder videos at a car boot sale.)
