Wait till you're 72, then say that.

At least you've had a good run though eh?

You do realise that you are on our list now?
You'll have forgotten that by tomorrow.

If only you could remember which sensible place you put the list though eh?

I'm knocking on 50 myself and not that far behind you and I've been called Pops since I was 39 so I'm just using up the pisstakes before they start flowing my way.

I met her a few times in the 80's. My mate played the gay, black, home help in "In Sickness And In Health", I went to watch it being filmed a few times and met her in the bar afterwards. A genuinely nice person.

Sad to read Sean Lock has passed. Brilliantly funny acerbic humour and just so off the cuff funny.

Fvck, 58!
Funny guy - infectious, odd and sometimes macabre sense of humour.

True loss to comedy. His bizarre sit com '15 storeys high' was comedy genius.

One of his monologues on 8 out of 10 about 'We buy any canal boat.com' had me in tears.

It really was. I managed to track down and rent the DVDs from Lovefilm years ago... still hard to find now I think.

Could have picked from thousands of fantastic moments, whether it's Nazi Island, the Challenging Wank or many others. But this is still one of the absolute best bits of his TV stuff:

Austin Mitchell MP A thoroghly nice chap, he was the first main TV anchorman at Yorkshire television along side Richard Whiteley. He decided to run as a labour Mp for Grimsby which he held to this day. i remember the first day I was on the film crews we filmed a documentary about the commissioning of the Selby coalfield, 20 years later he presented another film of the demise of the coal industry, we saw it in and out as he remarked at the time. He always had time for a chat regardless as to your position on the crew. RIP.Image

So sad to see that today. Went to see him locally many years ago when i didnt really know a lot of his stuff. I spent the entire show crying laughing and was a fan ever since. His stuff is so close to the knuckle but the delivery and timing was just perfection. He will be hugely missed :(
