Was Florence Nightingale actually a man in drag called Gary and William Wallace's Scottish Rebellion - The Truth At Last

On Great in Britain Radio Episode 9 Quentin updates us on the curse put on Bob the Producer by the Tadworth Satanists.  On Quentin's prompting Bob has gone to see their local Vicar and asked Jesus for help.  Vicar Samantha Haughton, a former football hooligan, mixed martial arts champion and a member of a Church of England swat team, prays on it and takes direct action against the forces of darkness in Tadworth and Walton on the Hill.  After a sudden spate of freakish and fatal accidents involving falling fridges, exploding camping stoves and some of the UK's leading insurance actuaries the Tadworth Satanists' curse seems to have been lifted.  After the update we are joined in the studio by Gerald Tadworth, talking squirrel, who has recorded a new jingle for our show.  Quentin then interviews, direct from heaven, two special guests - famed Scottish rebel Sir William Wallace and Florence Nightingale.  We discover, from Sir William 'Big Willy' Wallace, that Scottish history is very different from the one portrayed in the history books and that Wallace's first Scottish rebellion was actually a Gay pride march that got out of hand.  We also learn that the iconic Victorian pioneer of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, was actually a man in drag called Gary.  Gerald tells us that in next week's episode they will be interviewing the writer/director of the comedy movie Great in Britain: the movie, Howard Webster.
