Wikipedia:
The music was written by Rory O’Donoghue, who also did the singing as the character “Thin Arthur”, whereas “Aunty Jack” (Grahame Bond) provided wise-cracks and other spoken commentary to the lyrics, addressed to the listener and the singer.

The Guardian:
Aunty Jack (Grahame Bond) looked like a cuddly pantomime dame – until you noticed her moustache, boxing glove and baritone. Older viewers were horrified, but their kids loved her from night one.
