'Dirty Den' Leslie Grantham has just passed away.

Never saw/seen Eastenders, but knew of his popularity.

His surreal double act with Melinda Messenger on Fort Boyard was a sight to behold too...

Some female 'celebrity' who appeared on a so-called 'reality show' dies & it's makes the front page of the BBC News website.

Meanwhile, a holder of the Victoria Cross dies & doesn't merit a mention.

Not exactly 'front page' & a very small article.

Meanwhile, the father of a fashion designer who killed herself a couple of weeks ago has died & that makes the main news page.

Never heard of him or them, but nevertheless sorry to hear of his passing.

Is there any particular reason for this post?

As far as I can tell, all you've managed to do is inform us that you basically knew nothing whatsoever about him :dizzy: :dunno:

From the reports about how he treated his kids I'm not sure he will be massively missed. He did a documentary with Louis Theroux years ago which was fascinating viewing.

Motorcycle racer William Dunlop's dead.
Third Dunlop family member to be killed whilst racing motorcycles in recent years, isn't he?

Yes, third in 18 years. Michael has now lost his brother, father and uncle. The road racing season has been particularly tragic this year.
