Is it wrong that I'm wondering if he still had his suspiciously 'no-not-dyed-at-all-why-would-you-think-that' dyed hair right up to the end?

Herr Kohl seemed to suffer from the Clive Anderson shredded wheat hairstyle - that is, being a slaphead. He had some hair at the sides, but I always remember it being white/grey.

A real shame about Barry Norman.

Film (insert year) was never the same without him.

Gutted about Carol Lee Scott (Grotbags) very spookily on Tuesday I had been thinking about TV I used to love as a kid and wondered what had happened to her and if she was still playing Grotbags, ended up reading all about her, what she had been doing locally etc, then my wife tells me when I wake up this morning (totally unrelated) oh that lady Grotbags died. I was like WHAT!
