So why is he on the list?

 

He has advanced prostate cancer.

Too many dodgy soap stars, why bother with anyone from Corrie, Eastenders, etc. Surely we can come up with real celebrities rathers than these clowns.

Yeah, all these people from minor unwatched insignificant TV shows like "Coronation Street" and "Eastenders". We should have had some actress from some fucking 50s movie nobody has ever watched instead.

Dodgy soap stars? Lou Beale from Eastender and Jack Duckworth from Coronation Street are legends of two prominent soaps. We should only start to worry when actors from Emmerdale or Hollyoaks are put on the list. :burnash:

 

As for Geoffrey Hughes, although he was a relatively minor character in Coronation Street, he is a rather big name when you consider his more recent roles in 'Keeping up Appearances' and 'The Royale Family' (deathlisters will note he wasn't in this years (2010) Christmas special).

I'm not normally know for being a pedant, but the character was called Eddie Yeats and not Yates.

He was a lazy vest wearing tinny drinking bastard of the 1st magnitude - top quality bloke. Although why he never dumped his missus (Daisy) and had a stab at her short skirted sister Rose ............

was always beyond me. And lets not forget his portrayal of Twiggy in the Royle Family - truly a Man for all Seasons.

Yes, he was (fictionally) related to William Butler Yeats in the show.

There appears to have been no further news since his relapse was announced 12 months ago, has anybody else heard anything?

 

They say no news is good news...but for whom?

Given that he was diagnosed with relapsed prostate cancer I would suspect probably not, he probably wouldn't be on this list if he was!

A friend of mine has met him and says he is a really nice bloke... but then people always say that when they meet someone semi-famous, its a claim to fame thing... Don't know why but i find it amusing that he is actually dying

This is the latest info I've found on his condition. Can't find a date on the article, but it's at least a year old as his age is given as 66

"He is a warm and talented man and we are all looking forward to working with him again on the 'Royle Family Christmas Special'."

 

So - was he in it?
