‘Frankie C’ is identified as Sir Phillip Cross, the governments recently appointed entrepreneurial czar who denies ever having met Jimmy. ‘Beth’ is identified as Lizzie Wilton, living in Croydon and married to Ray, a second-generation Jamaican man, Lizzie also denies knowing Jimmy but is clearly a very different woman from who she was in the 70s before her marriage.
