That's another big name gone this year. The butt of jokes from Morcombe and Wise for years, he took it well. Probably not the best crooner that ever walked the planet he was fine for all that. His talk show was always worth watching he got the best out of his guests. Don't know too much about his life outside of the stage, no doubt he was a Thatcher supporter, if he was oh well. If he wasn't, good. Anyway he entertained me so goodbye Des RIP.
