Another one from the golden years of Television. I saw him once (in early 80's) he came out of a restaurant as a couple of us walked by and nearly bumped into him - he looked up at me just like out of one of his comedy sketches - jerking his head back and squinting through his glasses - so funny but that was real life, a spontaneous comedy moment - at least they won't have to spend much on a coffin or cremation! RIP!

I know he could be a real RC git and 'Don't you know who I am' according to people that have met him..but being famous and not the tallest person must have been not the easiest for him..

Another 'celeb freemason' bites the dust but lived to a good age and had the benefit of living through some of the best eras..

Four Candles was a classic..not a big fan of much of his stuff...

'The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town' was a hoot. Written by Spike Milligan too.

I never met him, but he came across as a genuinely warm, endearing, good-hearted person.

One of the last 'old school' television personalities.

RIP dear Ronnie Corbett.

That must be this roundabout.

Do you remember which lane he was in, and whether he was indicating?

He gave my mum a kiss at the golf in St Andrews, after she thanked him for the years of laughter. RIP Ronnie
