Whatever role he played he was always superb (IMO) The Highlander to name another...Loved him as James Bond , but tbf I think the title of best is now shared with Daniel Craig... And what about "The Hunt for the Red October". "The Untouchables" ...the list goes on and on ... He will be missed.
He won an oscar fir his performance in The Untouchables.

Actor Geoffrey Palmer, known for his roles in such sitcoms as Butterflies, As Time Goes By and The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, has died aged 93.

Brilliant actor especially in his comedy role, loved his grumpy & deadpan humour

RIP Geoffrey

One of the nicest people in showbusiness, always enjoyed Des's shows over the decades

RIP Des



Des O'Connor's agent said in a statement: "It is with great sorrow that I confirm that Des O'Connor passed away yesterday

"He had been admitted to hospital just over a week ago, following a fall at his home in Buckinghamshire. He was recovering well and had been in great spirits, visited by his family - in accordance with hospital lockdown regulations - and looking forward to going home.


"Unfortunately yesterday evening his condition suddenly deteriorated and he drifted peacefully away in his sleep.

"Des, who was 88, was so well loved by absolutely everyone. He was a joy to work with - he was talented, fun, positive, enthusiastic, kind and a total professional.

"He loved life, and considered enthusiasm almost as important as oxygen. He adored his family - they were everything to him."

He is survived by his wife Jodie, their son Adam and his four daughters, Karin, TJ, Samantha and Kristina.

The agent added: "Jodie's world is shattered, she and Adam and Des's daughters are hurting more than you could possibly imagine.

"Des was the ultimate entertainer. He loved being on stage - entertaining a live audience. He always said the sound of laughter was like the sound of heavenly music.

"He had a fabulous international TV career, presenting his own prime-time TV shows for over 45 years. On stage he starred at almost every leading venue throughout the world."
