I'm shocked to hear this. I hadn't realised he was ill.

Hardy could be very funny and quite maddening sometimes, but he was always worth listening to and his dry humour could be quite cutting.

I'm truly shocked. I only went to see him perform last year. :sad:

Same age as me - very funny on radio and live too.

Every so often, one just knocks you sideways. This is one of them.

A shock - he'd evidently kept his illness secret. I have every episode of 'Jeremy Hardy speaks to the Nation' recorded, and they get replays on a regular basis. A very funny man.

A very funny man and a great singer too.

Jeremy Hardy was one of favourite comedians, his style and his observations always gave ma a good laugh.

As has been said above, this is one of those that comes out of the blue and knocks you sideways.

Very sad , the theories outside of the worst seem very far fetched but I guess you can just hope until there’s finality. Got to say I was a bit surprised he was coming on his own tbh , footballers usually come with a little entourage and agent .  Now that’s seems a blessing , really terrible story

It's been confirmed now. 

It's been so sad. He had everything to look forward to. He seemed such a pleasant and down to earth person.The photo of his dog waiting for him was so moving. Fortunately his sister will care for him.

One of the greatest ever Salford lads from any walk of life.

 

He went to my school ,Salford Grammar School albeit 15 years before me.

 

He used to come back to judge the inter house acting competition and probably used to despair at the lack of talent!

Can’t remember the title but a scene in one of his films was shot on the end of our street.

 

my mom bless her, doesn’t know they’re filming and sees a guy (Finney) on his knees screaming to the sky. The cameras are hid behind the gable end. Being the lovely woman she was she ran on the street to help this poor chap, right into the shot!!

”Cut” shouts the director, Finney hugs my mom and says “you’re a lovely lady” she was flustered for weeks ?

For years, because my dad used to watch the film *all the time*, I just thought he was "the bloke who plays Scrooge in that musical".

I was a bit surprised when I found out he had a proper career.

RIP Gordon Banks.


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!
