Just wondering if Norman Wisdom has been considered. I've been watching this one since the early '90s.

Norm was included on the list in 1997 and 2003. Still looks a bit sprightly though!

DWB :D

He's been on my list for the last 18 months. Is he practising for the octogenarian olympics or something?

Not that this is related to anything but...

How do they allocate the handicapped car parking spaces at the paraplegic Olympics?? :D

(A point for anyone who knows where I knicked this one from)

I've got Norman on a personal Deathlist this year but by the look of it the cheeky blighter is still more likely to be calling for Mr Grimshaw rather than Mr Grim-Reaper...... :D

Have we heard back from Norman's agent recently? He sent us an awfully shirty email a few years ago saying that his client was fighting fit (and available for Panto). We asked him to let us know if there was any deterioration in NW's condition.

Looks like the DL committee are going to have to watch Corrie in the name of research.....

Does 2005 beckon an opportunity for success?

It was terrible. Anyway, the important bits: he seemed quite sprightly, but his speech was inaudable.

Could he be on his last legs?

I also saw this report, but could find no word on failing health. Let's hope your hunch is correct!

I heard an interview on an English-Language Spanish radio station last week with Mr Wisdom and he sounded in good health - even sang his famous (apparently) song about being a fool and did a "Mr Grimsdale" for the DJ - he also wants to make a film, so I don't know that he is on his way out just yet.
It is surely better to be pissed off than pissed on

I see Norman out quite a bit and he's very sprightly for his age. He's a flirtatious bugger too.

Do you live in Albania perchance?

If so, does everyone wear military hats at a jaunty angle and sport well-clipped mustaches?

No. Isle of Man I'm afraid. Love the pic of King Zog though.

Is this insider knowledge? Either way, I thought it belonged here - just because he's almost 90 doesn't mean he warrants 2 threads!

Norman Wisdom is a relative of mine and I'd appreciate it if you didn't bet on his death. Thanks.
