BBC Radio Derby presenter Colin Bloomfield has been diagnosed with melanoma.

 

In some respects, I’m quite lucky in the sense I’ve not been told I’ve got three months to live. They’ve said to me there is no cure but there are treatments that can prolong my life. But with all due respect, I’m 31 – I’m not interested in living until I’m 33 or 34...

 

Obituary assured when his

BBC profile page is updated. The profile tells us that Bloomfield is the "fifth most famous person to come out of Shrewsbury".

Veteran BBC broadcaster John Cole has died at 85

 

No longer "reporting from Westminster" A guy at school did a great impersonation of him, but it always ended up turning into tales of John and Madge's sex lives :lol:

Another person I've worked with. His accent really was that thick, he wasn't putting it on for effect.

 

Is he the most famous person you have worked with?

We from "Norn Iron" don't put on our own accent, if anything we try to tone it down, but sometimes that has horrendous results, eg Nadine Coyle :puke:
