    Sad news.

    He didn't really float my boat these days, but it was very much a family time sat in front of that "watching you, watching us, watching you, watching Sarah Kennedy before she started pretending to be posh" thing when I was a kid on a Saturday evening.

    Quite agree. Beadle was a staple diet for us on a Saturday evening. I didn't even know he was long-term ill.

    Likewise, i found him increasingly more irritating over the years. I just read a report on his death and they estimate he raised £100 million for various charities, even if that figure is not accurate it's still an awful lot of money.
     
  4. 'You've been Framed' has never been the same since he left and 'Beadle's About' was always regular in our house on a Saturday. RIP Jeremy

    I used to watch beedles about as a kid, but i found his 'wee' hand increasingly disturbing.

    Are you sure he's dead? - I would want to make doubly sure it wasn't a prank!

    Whether you liked him or not there is no doubt that his charitable work ouweighs anything else.

    I was not a big fan of his but did watch and enjoy the show when I was in the UK. As always it's sad to hear when someone has 'passed on'!!

    He'll always be remembered for the "pratfall t.v." but he was a very accomplished D.J. in his early days and was very well versed musically. He gave a number of acts their first airplay.

    I know little about the guy but am aware of his reputation as the figure everyone 'loved to hate'. It's always sad when someone is taken from us, so young*...

    *(contemplates one's own forthcoming birthday :sad:)

    Today as the nation is in mourning for Jeremy Beadle, his official autopsy was released…………… apparently he had a small d!ck but on the other hand it was quite big!!!


    It will be a cremation and screened on ITV “You’ve been flamed” Wednesday at 7

    Police are suggesting Jeremy Beadles death may be suspicious ..........

    Next to his body they found a single black glove, they are not ruling out the posibility that the glove may have had a small hand in it.
