    Definitely try the Scottish papers. Iain's based in Scotland after all. I also can't decide whether to follow him or not. One if his followers is himself!

    For all those moaning about post count on here, please bear in mind how bad it would have been if Iain was still here. Want a taster? Here's Iains twitter account. A close friend of the Queen no less: https://twitter.com/CeciliaBTory?s=09 I think this would have been 20 pages from Iain alone.

    Only Famous For Being Ill And Dying

    Alt obits post was the first since January 6th and as Msc says shouldve been put in the radio thread, if indeed it even needed posting. So this thread will just drop off naturally as those mentioned in previous posts die.

    British Character Actors

    I must admit he looked significantly older and frailer in The Crown but I put that down to not seeing him in as much recently. Very sad news,terrific actor.

    So good they named her twice. Anyway, she died in February 2020 so you're a little late and it was reported here at the time. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/candace-muzny-death-nascar-driver-jail-assault-nail-salon-police-a9345406.html%3famp

    https://www.htsa-web.com/post/heritage-an-interview-with-town-s-oldest-living-player Graham Bailey 100% alive as per Michael F's research but he's not in Cornwall, he's still in Yorkshire. Good to have clarity and another centenarian footballer. Seems in good health too.

    Looks rough but it might just be lighting and a need of a haircut https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/science-environment-56175714

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    You learn something every day. I never knew Holt was related to Derbyshire. Probably explains why she retired from Corrie to help care for her husband.
