    Let's hope for Cameron, milliband; clegg and Bercow. None will be missed as much as David Jacobs. Superb broadcaster and a true gentleman.

    Shane Warne. Not much of a broadcaster but a tit. Gobby too. That orange skin is going to start to grow melanoma like sultanas in a scone.
  7. "In 1964, he became one of the original Top of the Pops presenters"

    Or a lucky escape.
  8. RIP.

    I shall raise one of your delicious crackers in your honour tonight.

  11. I thought both of the tossers had shuffled off their BBC headphones years ago. Next up is good old Rolf.
  12. Good odds on Bruce Forsyth I would expect.
