    Very sad and far to young too :( You'd think by now that we could handle pneumonia, but it's still a killer :(

    I heard a Richard Whiteley saying on Friday. He said he'd found a hole between his and Carol Vorderman's dressing room. He thought and thought about it and then decided "Oh blow it, I'll just let her look in!"

    Yes it is a great shock. Poor Carol for 1 thing. Very young. BBC News item reads well as well.

    Very sad. He was a popular figure in Yorkshire and I have seen him about in his Jag several times. 61 is far too young to go nowadays, my condolences to all his family and friends
