Every year there is a "surprise" death, one from your childhood perhaps who suddenly curls up after being out of the spotlight for a while or one who is incredibly active and just goes too soon. If they survive this year, my suggestions for the ones that make you go "Awww!!!" are:
Heinz Wolff (Egg Race);
Brian Cant (Play Away, etc.);
Jim Dale (Carry On Actor);
Derek Griffiths (still voicing ads in the UK, amigo, Kids' TV presenter);
Julia McKenzie (Fresh and French Fields);
Miriam Margolyes (almost anything you've ever seen).
You could add John Noakes (Blue Peter) to that list. I didn't realize until just now that he turned 80 last May.
You mean we could "Go With Noakes".
Well, he did look...tired on Pointless last year.
