    That's a shame. Just watching an interview with him last night and remarked on how frail he looked. The evils of too much drink I'm afraid.

    :( Such a sad day.

    I loved his programmes - a decent TV personality, and a great chef to boot!

    RIP

    Did anyone watch Keith on Keith last night ?

    Basically it was Keith Allen tracking him down to Avignon and spending the weekend with him. Allen was surprisingly sensitive throughout , and actually left me a little bit upset at the end.

    A very moving programme.

    RIP Mr Floyd :(

    I saw some of Keith meets Keith last night. It was sad to see the wine soaked wreck he'd become.

    I agree .... hugely upsetting.

    At times he could hardly string a sentence together , and at the 'reunion' meal where he swore at his daughter that he hasn't seen for ten years , i could hardly watch. :(

    -That said, (previously) undeniably very talented & hugely entertaining -can't remember many of his recipes though!.
    Did not watch the programme last night

    Very said to hear of this news, especially with the timing of the program. RIP ol' chap.
