Some of Clive James's books are amongst the funniest things written. His TV shows in the 90s were great too.

Really sad and shocking. One of the most honest, watchable and interesting pundits on TV.

Legend is perhaps a little over used at times, but anyone old enough to remember the mid 1980s would remember Live It Up used in the Crocodile Dundee movie party scene - "just making sure".

Perhaps a little more well known, Marie Fredriksson of Roxette fame has died aged 61 after quite a long battle with illness. :sad:
