Now at least we can all agree that his only discernable talent was an ability to sport an all year sun tan and pretend to laugh until he cried.

Does this mean that Bradley Walsh is now the undisputed King of chat show hysterical (false/forced) laughter?

Loved it on the Des O'Connor show when he tried to stop Freddie Starr causing absolute mayhem, of course, it was a lost cause

Re: Des O'Connor has bought the farm
If he was in such good health what was he doing in hospital?

RIP Des. A very good all-rounder. Liked his talk show back in the day. Used to have a lot of new comedians on who were usually genuinely funny, unlike the cunts calling themselves comedians today.

Re: Des O'Connor has bought the farm
Couple of nice stories -

Back in 2014, Des revealed the sparring between him and Eric, who died in 1984, continued even throughout the bleakest of times. He told the Daily Mail: "When Eric had his first heart attack in 1968, I was doing a show in front of 2,000.

"I went for a sip of water and the stage manager said, 'Eric Morecambe’s had a heart attack. He’s dying'
.
"I went back on and, at the end of the show, I said, 'If you believe in such things, please remember Eric in your prayers. He’s not well.'

"Happily he recovered and six weeks later he was in a meeting with some journalists. "One of them said, 'Are you aware Des O’Connor asked his entire audience to pray for you?' Eric said, 'Well, those six or seven people probably made a difference'."



Didn’t being the butt of everybody else’s jokes for a good few decades rankle at times?

‘What did hurt me a little bit was when my kids told me they were getting sweets and stale bread thrown at them with people shouting, “Your dad’s rubbish.”

I remember phoning Eric one day and saying, “One of my fans is very upset.” He said, “Let me talk to the other one.” We laughed and then he said, “I’ll tell you what, on Saturday’s show I’ll say something nice about you.” I said, “OK.”

‘So that Saturday Eric said, “People are saying Des and I are enemies. He came to my daughter’s wedding. Do you hear that? He came to my daughter’s wedding. He wasn’t invited, but he came.”

'I thought, “You so-and-so” but you couldn’t get angry with Eric. It was only when other people did the jokes that it rankled. They weren’t as funny as Eric so I didn’t welcome them, but what can you do? You have to laugh at yourself.

Re: Des O'Connor has bought the farm
Reports that he was in relatively great spirits and health until he was admitted to hospital and they worked their usual magic and he never lasted a week such is their near 100% record with care for the elderly.

I notice Mike Winters died in 2013. I don't know how Bernie's dog Schnorbitz is though. Must be around 50 years old.

Re: Des O'Connor has bought the farm
Attention.

Serious, when anyone in showbiz does anything like that or almost anything at all, its for attention.

Including dying sometimes probably

Re: Des O'Connor has bought the farm
Mike Yarwood not dead. He retired many years ago when he developed stage fright.

Stanley Baxter recently came out of the closet,but I think everyone knows he is gay.

Poor old Des O'Connor didn't look at all well a year or two ago outside the Palladium at some function. Tommy Steele who was with him looked spritely and is still with us. He looks amazing for his age.

RIP Des.
