It's been yonks since I contributed so here are a few more old-fashioned expressions that occurred to me:

Kicking up a fuss

Strike A light - exclamation

Lumme or Cor Lumme - exclamation (I'm guessing this is 'God Love Me')

Jawing - talking

Daft as a brush

Bonce - head

We had an english exchange student at my school waaay back in the day.

An expression she once used (and only once!) was:

"Can you knock me up in the morning?"

I heard this one the other day, and while I'm not sure if it's an old saying, I had never heard it before and found it hilarious:

"She/he can go to hell wearing gasoline drawers."
