Took the family to see him in Weston a few years ago. Show started at 7 and we got out at quarter past midnight. He came out with a flask and sandwiches after an interval. Total legend. RIP.

Stephen Hawking has died :( 

Very sad news, what an incredible man, achievements beyond imagination despite being dealt some of the hardest physical and health knocks that life can throw at a person... His lifetimes work will continue to benefit mankind, and even all life on this planet for the foreseeable future.. Steven Hawking foresaw much more than most, let's hope any warnings he offered regarding the survival of our planet is heeded and his peers are able to continue his work ...

Amazing man.. R.I.P   Stephen Hawking .

Lets hope he left with a bendy bully and his BFH.

Googled him literally just a few days ago as i wasn't sure if he was still with us.

Actually made me cry. What a man! 

Was listening to Prof Brian Cox talking about him on R2 this morning.

He listed him as one of the greatest scientists of all time. If you can get your head around some of the things he is responsible for discovering, he really is up there with the Einsteins and Newtons of this world.

Oh no, what a horrible day...

Now its .... JIM ''have a look at what you could have won'' BOWEN  .... RIP. 

Sadly its far from a super, smashing, day following on so quickly after the news of Stephen Hawking's passing.

Remember Jim from 'The Comedians' tv shows as well as later on the better known Bullseye.. (wonder how many of 'The Comedians' line ups are still with us? ..theyre mostly gone too I think.)

We're rapidly running out of the Worlds true entertainers, theatre and tv household names and stars.... how long before all we are left with are fond memories of a golden era.... & little else other than'reality' tv 'stars', so sad.

'So, tell me what you do, young man?'

'I'm unemployed Jim'

'Super smashing great....'

Pause

RIP Jim Bowen (& those jumpers and oversize glasses)

That’s totally it. His passing really has left a black hole. He really was a super human. I don’t pretend to understand hardly any of his work, but got to wonder at his mind. So cruel he was physically dealt the hand he did.

My daughter said to me on hearing the news ‘so who is the cleverest mind in the world now?’ Good question.

This has probably been the saddest I’ve been about someone dying probs since Diana died for all the reasons you’ve said.

Apparently Peter Kay has died?!

Cancelled his tour after being diagnosed with leukaemia is what I was told, though nothing in the news?!

No disrespect to the guy and hope it’s not true. Very sad if so.

Apparently a recent hoax by Peter Reid (not the ex-Everton one, I assume). Tour cancelled for 'Family Reasons'. Bolton's broadest is still with us it seems.

Ah, for the older among us she was a familiar personality who had many roles on TV in the past. She was born Caterina Irene Elena Maria Imperiali de Principi di Francavilla in Italy and as a multi-linguist she was involved with the Eurovision Song contest.

RIP Bill.  Had the pleasure of meeting the man a number of years ago in a pub near Nuneaton on his birthday. He was one character.  Sleep well Sir.

Don't know about you but so many from my generation are starting to pass on.  Makes you realise the fragility of life.
