Bernard Cribbins

Recommended Posts

Bernard is in radio action over Christmas in a version of Spike Milligan's The Bed Sitting Room

 

So he's obviously still healthy enough for semi-demanding work.

I was at London MCM this weekend and saw the end of Bernard's talk. He was witty, alert and even managed an impromptu rendition of Digging a Hole. Not one for 2018.

Ah good. I know the young ones in the family love Old Jacks Boat (another new-ish Cribbins pre-school show, something like 60 years after his first ones). A few months ago, Dad was over visiting and Old Jack was on Cbeebies. My 'pretends to be far too old to care about celebs' dad stopped mid-sentence to let out a most un-Dad-like excited "Oh, its Cribbins!" :D

 

Will be a sad one when he goes.

NOT DEAD

 

Cribbins is 89 today!

 

Also, he's reading the bedtime story on Cbeebies - apparently filmed recently - and looking very good for his age. Heartening to see,  I like Bernard Cribbins.

Me too, almost in the 'untouchable for DL' mould like Brian Cant.

On Pointless Celebrities this evening (recorded last year).

 

Will he go the way of Bill Maynard? Certainly lucid and chatty but wheelchair and fairly gaunt.

He's 90 today! :birthday:

 

From Wombles to Wilfrid, a legend.

:clap: 60+ years as a top level entertainer (and most of that as a kids entertainer, which has a very short lifespan usually). Let's hope the only updates in this thread remain birthdays for a while yet.
