I thought he typified everything that was wrong with ITV and 'popular' television myself.

Edit: (not was wrong, IS wrong)

It's much easier to die of pneumonia if you are having treatment for Leukaemia at the time... limited immune response.

Ahhhhhh! Sad. I did sort of grow up watching him on telly so although you dont realise there is still a connection.
You get very attached to people Rory. First it was Matt Jansen, now it's Jeremy Beadle....do you have some underlying issues we should know about? ;)

Nah, I was sad to hear about Jezza too. I was just talking to my other half about this sort of thing the other day. When you're a kid you hear your parents say, "oh no, such-and-such-a-person died", and you think, "yeah, so what?"...it's only when you get to a certain age that you realise the people who entertained you as a kid are mostly gonna die in your lifetime. The same thing happens with musicians, actors, any kind of entertainers really. I remember as a young 'un my mother was devastated when Freddy Mercury died.

Okay, now the trauma has died down a bit, it's time for a Jeremy Beadle joke.


Jeremy Beadle has a very small cock...on the other hand, it's really big.


:foot: :roll:

I was going to post that joke, but thought it may be a bit too soon. Tomorrow would have been fine though.

You're a student, you're always in bed. How can I take your word for it? ;)
Key word is sitting. I wasn't actually trying to sleep!

They were going to give him a minutes silence at all the Premiership games this weekend but his family asked for a minutes applause instead.

They said he would have appreciated a big hand.
