He was 83.
Something about "I'll have an RIP please".
The very first James Bond
So how many DiSsers met the guy (ie how many of us were on Blockbusters?)
*slowly raises hand*
This makes me sadder :(
I thought he was already dead.
Could't believe it when he was in those Churchill ads
Ed Miliband tweeted this first by mistake..
Sad to hear that Bob Holness has died. A generation will remember him fondly from Blackbusters.
Like Academic Excellence or something because I was the greatest person who'd ever attended the school.
I was going to go anyway cos I'm not looking a £5 WH Smiths voucher in the mouth but Bob Holness was hosting it! Deal sealed!
Anyway, got there. No Bob Holness. Nothing was said. Everyone was going what a prick, not turning up to a school.
Then at the VERY END like Thanks so much for coming, have a safe journey OH BY THE WAY Bob Holness couldn't be here cos he was really sick and has had to go into hospital.
THEY COULD HAVE TOLD US AT THE FUCKING START. Everyone left feeling like a total cunt
but haven't we had at least 4 DiSsers on University Challenge?
Similar type, slightly older I suppose
Law of averages etc.
and didn't you have to be an adult to go on? We're not all *that* old.
You've got the wrong programme. It was sixth formers and possibly younger.
(though Bob stopped in 94)
all the contestants were lower 6th when I was on
I predict video store Blockbusters will also kick the bucket in 2012.
