    Lovely guy. Used to watch him when he appeared in that safari park series, loved his taste in waistcoats :)

    Let's hope his 75 wifelets have not been infected.

    I've just seen this on the news. Certainly a character generally and with his 'wifelets' (though don't think it was quite as many as that florian gassman ;)) .

    Always interesting to watch and listen to.

    Sad demise of such a hedonist. How did he last this long?

    Not a bad innings, whatever the cause of death.

    A lovely man, I came across him personally several times, he did a lot for homeless people

    A very sad end. I wish he hadn't died like this.

    Well maybe he could have expected another five years but on other threads here we've talked about not wanting to outlive our ability to have a life - so yes of course it is sad, and he will be mourned but, again to quote a post I wrote years ago - pneumonia used to be called the old man's friend.

    That might sound awfully heartless and I don't mean it to - but we cant have it all ways.

    Died from coronavirus? Or died with coronavirus?

    Don't know. I haven't been given sight of his death certificate.

    It wouldn't matter if you had. My dad's said Covid-19 when he had no symptoms of it. I'm feeling myself getting very sceptical...

    As I think he said of himself, he 'never embraced the bourgeois convention'.

    And its such a shame, because that will overshadow his memory

    Perhaps I should have underlined the 'don't think it was quite as many. ! ;) One extra makes a whole lot of difference. :p

    Such a character......................but with so many 'wifelets' I'm amazed he lasted this long!!

    If one of them had been Lesley Lawson, would that have made her a 'Twiglet'
