Sir Jimmy Savile dies aged 84

http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16099015

So:

  • Kiddly fiddler?
  • Corpse toucher?
  • Other? (please specify)
  • All of the above?

Perhaps the Queen misjudged him?

He fought over one hundred professional wrestling bouts losing nearly every one of them

Let it all out, LadyDi. Tell us what really went on.. ;)

Oh I wish I knew. I hope no cigars were involved

I want a sinister charabanc.

He was devoted to his mum.

As a mum, I find it sad that this is so often the sign of someone odd. Somehow it shouldn't be.

What is this sinister charabanc business?

urbanspacemonkey - 29 Oct 2011 16:01:08 (#49 of 17117)

It's bit odd when you're 80 and she's dead

GPWM

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 16:05:38 (#51 of 17117)

GPWM?

He kept all his mum's clothes in the wardrobe after she died and left her bedroom exactly as it was. That's a bit odd.

kokolores - 29 Oct 2011 16:07:19 (#52 of 17117)

So that means <does some maths> that back in 1967, the Summer of Love and the Beatles and Top of the Pops and all, Jimmy was already 40. Phew!

1OffManMental - 29 Oct 2011 16:08:03 (#53 of 17117)

Grief does strange things to people.



Wearing his mum's clothes and keeping her corpse exactly as it was would be a bit odd.

GPWM GOOD POINT WELL MADE

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 16:16:58 (#55 of 17117)

Thanks Electro

Within minutes, MINUTES of the news breaking on Sky @ 3pm there were fulsome tributes from Dave Lee Travis.

What more epitaph would you want. And Diddy David Hamilton has just been on.

Its the main damn story on there. Suppose they're trying to make up for not going big on the death of Betty Driver the other saturday.

Sky man Ashish Joshi has said, "There was really no bad stories about him At All", a universally kind and loved man, then.

Although Nick Highams on BBC in the pre-packed obit does mention that Jimell was mysterious and essentially a bit odd.

Colleen Nolan did actually appear with him when he was a guest on Loose Women a few months back. Not awkward at all.

oohbetty - 29 Oct 2011 16:23:08 (#57 of 17117)

Let's not forget internet poster TheP (RIP)'s friend who snorted a line of coke from Saville's engorged member.

StakludKar - 29 Oct 2011 16:30:16 (#58 of 17117)

Will it get menioned on Have I Got News For You?



Leeds poice were called to his flat @ midday, and have announced there were no suspicious circumstances to Jimells death.

The cops always announce this whenever a much loved Octegenarian celebrity dies

TommyDGNR8 - 29 Oct 2011 16:32:11 (#59 of 17117)

Fare thee well, Sir Jimmy.

You really wound up some people just by being you.

For that, and your charitable work

I salute you.

Leftie - 29 Oct 2011 16:43:41 (#60 of 17117)

I bet The Guardian are relieved they closed The Talk. It'd be a nightmare having him die at the weekend with no moderators.
