    Bea Arthur
    Farrah Fawcett
    Stephen Gately
    Jade Goody
    Tony Hart
    Michael Jackson

    Maggie Jones

    eta: but they missed out Sir Clement Freud, how could they do that, I mean he was most famous for his contribution to a BBC radio show. Seems odd.

    Someone I know was very upset about Patrick Swayze, her favourite film of all time was Dirty Dancing. Apparently there was a 100s club in the states for people who had seen the film 100 times. I don't think I saw it once all the way through!!

    I do remember Mollie Sugden and that show Are You Being Served, we were allowed by our parents to watch it despite its sometimes saucy content. We used to watch it as a family.

    I am quite sad at the passing of Micheal Jackson. Sprog loves Thriller, it is sprogs favourite song. To think that Jackson will never perform again is sad.
