Barry Chuckle, 73. 

Very sad news.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Rotherham can ill afford bad news. 

A little of Rotherham's soul goes with Barry. My daughter used to deliver his papers when he lived in Rawmarsh. Nice bloke. Their roots were part of their act.

Micklebring loses a nice fella, a funny guy who brought fun to people.

It's pretty standard whenever you're working and watching two people do something to take the pee and say 'bloody hell, it's the chuckle brothers'.

It's a certain level of fame when you enter the everyday vernacular.

and the "to me to you " thing is now etched and woven  in to the psyche of british culture, that's remarkable in its self

RIP Poundworld, whose final stores closed today. The best thing in Normanton since Ben Thaler (and my employer these past six years).

You genuinely couldn't make up half of the true story of this business and the last two years of idiocy and arrogance which ended in its destruction.

A fantastic tribute to Barry at Rotherham's home game with Ipswich. The  home and away fans chanting from me to you.

One of the few chefs I looked up to when I was at college and first started out in the industry, an absolute god but a bit of a b'std to work for apparently. Okay, all head chefs are b'stds to work for, I include myself in that? glad I'm out of it though, it can knock years off you.

Asset stripping by the sounds of it, but value of pound had an effect of course but maybe gullible punters found that actually most of it could be had cheaper elsewhere. The special (reduced) packet sizes only fooled the dims for so long.

Someone else put it well; he was a celebrity because he was such an outstanding chef, rather than the more common "celebrity chef" because he courted TV and other media.

And I quite like that he's most fondly remembered for his mashed potatoes, rather than some tower-like, agonisingly-tweezered assemblage of exotic ingredients.

I think her version of " I Say A Little Prayer " was her finest moment although her " Don't Play That Song " was great also.

My personal favourite

Amazing how many artists of that era had personal lives that were an absolute sh**show, yet performed at such a high level.
