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?

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!

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

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.

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

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

Fare thee well, Sir Jimmy.

You really wound up some people just by being you.

For that, and your charitable work

I salute you.

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

Dead person ≠ lawsuit shirley.

she probably figured that she's safe now she's no longer 14

Heh!

He was a Mensa member and had an IQ of 149.

That's higher than Shakira!

Garrick

What about that video in which Auberon Waugh denounces Sir Jimmy? (Or am I misremembering)
