" . . . and that's a wrap!" Yes it is for ken!

Film director Ken Russell, who was Oscar-nominated for his 1969 film Women In Love, has died at the age of 84.

His son, Alex Verney-Elliott, said he died in hospital on Sunday following a series of strokes.
During his career, he became known for his controversial films including Women In Love, which featured Oliver Reed and Alan Bates wrestling nude.
Can't say I've seen Women In Love, as I waiting for it's sequal Woman In Latex. Two men nude wrestling? Mmm . .I think I'll give it a miss.

Personally i thought the old git had died years ago.

And before anyone else checks, he wasn't a nominee in the ARRSE Dead Pool list

Ken Russell, what a guy, the world is a fruit loop less now. However, have you read his account of meeting the Goody's in CBB?

Ken Russell: How Jade Baddy drove me out of Big Brother | Mail Online

Describing Jade Goody's Mum,

"Later the mother told me she'd been in a motorcycle accident in which she had 'died' for nine hours, and I realised what had happened to her - she was brain dead. It all made sense"

And of Goody herself and her Mother:

"I grew up in the slums of Southampton, but I have never heard such talk. There used to be a word for such low-lifes - guttersnipes. I haven't used that word for more than 60 years - not until I met that girl and her mother"

Now there was a guy that could, and would, say it as it was!
