Funny bloke in his day, sadly felled due to an excessive fondness for pies.

But then, better to live a life of indulgence and perish early, than to end up sitting in a pool of your own filth in some grotty care home, tended by uninterested sods on minimum wage.

Met him quite a few times at various race courses - he did like a punt - back in the early/mid eighties. Good bloke back then, shame.

RIP Mel but you were always odds-on to go early.

There was something else going on other than being overweight. On one of his last appearances on TV in 2008, he appeared to be a mumbling, stumbling, twitching wreck. It was claimed that he was suffering from 'severe pharyngitis'.

I don't think that he appeared on TV after this.
