Broadcaster Nicholas Parsons has died at the age of 96 after a short illness, his agent has confirmed.
Thankyou for letting us know.
My second thought was, "I wonder how they'll smite this with the diversity hammer."He will be a very tough car to replace on Just a minute, but I can’t help feeling that with the current attitude of the BBC they will want to replace him with a woman.
The innuendo is slowly coming back.To be fair to the BBC, when Humphrey Littleton carked it the BBC sought to replace him (on "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue") as close to like for like as possible by hiring Jack Dee, who has been quite good in the role.
Mind you, they also banned all the sexual innuendo around Sven and Samantha, so they're not totally blameless. Twats.
I disagree about the legs, I saw him in Bielefeld in the late eighties and again in the UK much later.I remember him being in the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Birmingham Hippodrome, terrible legs in stockings and sussies but without doubt one of the great performers of his age.
... and the toning down of the Lionel Blair gags made them almost pointless. They were once pants-wettingly funny. Apparently Mrs Blair wasn't amused (well, according to Lionel she wasn't.)Mind you, they also banned all the sexual innuendo around Sven and Samantha, so they're not totally blameless. Twats.
