I watched a programme about him a while back and realised he had a kind side to him, which he hid with a different act most of the time.

Glad he finally married his long suffering partner Geraldine, she will miss him and his finicky ways so much. He was certainly a character who used his talents to the full

May he rest in peace.

He did a lot of good work in fundraising for the police, the Yvonne Fletcher memorial fund.

He had been very ill following eating that dodgy oyster a few years back and had Heath problems since then.

Apparently liver specialists gave him 18 months to live last August.

He was outspoken and abrupt sometimes but He always seemed to talk a lot of sense. According to Michael Caine he was kindhearted.

RIP Michael.

Just heard that he died today.Think he'd been suffering for some time.
Love him or hate him,he was quite a character.
