Well he's clearly not doing that bad if he's out and about this much.

 

Agreed. He looks like what he is: an old, retired Doctor.

He looks alright for a guy who is literally fucking 90 in a couple of months time

I'd bet him making another year. At least.

hes 90.

Yeah well over life expectancy.Especially for someone who has struggled with alcoholism in the past.

He used to be really plump when I was growing up.Definitely seems a gradual yet overall massive weight loss over the last three years.

Yes, that basso profundo part of his unmistakable voice has gone a bit. Still, 90 in 4 weeks time!

He was quite big bulk on the 50th anniversary 

How is he so slim and. Frail

I haven't looked him up at all and on this side of the Atlantic (hell, I'm near the Pacific, ha), I have no idea who this dude is.  (OK, I looked him up and I see what he's famous for now, got it.)  In looking at him, yes, he looks extremely frail and thin, as he is wearing multiple layers of clothing in almost all of the shots I see on this page, yet the clothes are draping him and look loose.  He looks like skin and bones.  Having said that, he can apparently still stand, as seen in that birthday message on Twitter, so that's a good sign, I suppose.  But I don't think we have to worry about Jimmy Carter territory here.

He’s thin Alright but I don’t think he looks bad at all. Stand still can talk properly and have some humour left. His skin is the good carnation and everything. Just look old but that’s all.

A good addition.National treasure and ageing quickly and with substantial weight loss and reports of hospitalisation last year as well as alcohol abuse in the past.As I said before doesn't look too disimilar to how John McCririck did towards the end.

He's a great pick for the list but one I'd personally like them to fail with!
