Stephen Step’s step too far

You’re looking at the sorry face of Stephen Step. As one half of the aerobics power-duo, The Step Brothers, Stephen (along with his brother Stephan) was once tipped to make milky waves in the world of breakfast-time TV. Alas, it was not to be — after getting wind that a pair of young upstarts were out to steal his crown, Mr Motivator planned an elaborate sabotage scheme involving a massive bag of banana skins. Come to think of it, it wasn’t elaborate at all — he just left a banana skin on Stephen and Stephan’s doorstep. It worked though, and neither of them ever stepped again. Truly tragic. Never trust a man in spandex.
