I heard this on the Radio alarm this morning and then dreamt I was taking the piss out of him being dead. Woke up later and felt a little shitty.

Seems wierd as he always seemed younger than his actual years, 75. :(

I don't know what to say.

Seems there's always someone famous that goes around Christmas. Bye Bob.

Holy crap. I've been using "Bob Monkhouse" or just "Monkhouse" as my in game names for the last few months too. I was telling jokes this morning while waiting to respawn, how bad taste is that?

As one of those people who you grew up seeing everywhere on the telly, I assumed him immortal (I even thought Spike Milligan was still alive until a few months ago). Sleep well Bob.

Thats very sad news, a good bloke and funny too.
He's someone who I have actually heard of as well.
My thoughts go to his friends and family.

Still, at least they'll be able to drill his coffin for oil :)

RIP Bob, another great passes on.

Aye, he's always been on the Telly for me as well, over the past couple of decades. Well done Bob, you put in more effort than many.

I heard about this on Freddys IRC Channel because someone had said it seemed like some last PR stunt which was highlighted as that is my nick :(

RIP Bob

I was shocked to hear this. Knew he had been suffering from C for some time, but thought he was managing to tackle it. Really sad news.
