    I reckon nobody outside the UK will know this guy, but he was a big figure on TV when I was growing up... his Beadle's about TV show (the original version of punked or whatever that Ashton Kutcher presents) was so so cruel yet so totally funny.

    Pneumonia?

    I read that he was taken to hospital with pneumonia.

    Bit of a shock.
    I remember watching 'Beadle's About' when we visited my Granparents on a Saturday night.

    RIP Beadle

    Beadle's About and early YBF was pure genius, he raised millions for charities without crowing about it like Jimmy bloody Saville, and kids made lots of jokes about his little hand.

    One of a kind.

    I thought for sure the b3ta main board would be full of Beadleshops, but it seems they're letting this one pass. That just goes to show you how much he meant to them.
