  • Didn't think he was that old. RIP
  • A character. RIP

    RIP John
  • RIP. A bit of a strange fella, but good value on tv

  • An extraordinarily wonderful extroverted character a complete one off.......mad as a box of frogs but by god he knew his stuff when it came to the GG’s.
  • RIP - getting mixed views on my twitter feed about this.  Completely oblivious to his story, but some people saying his wife can now rest in peace and they don’t want to hear anything from Claire Balding.  What’s the back story?
  • RIP John
  • Another great British eccentric sadly bites the dust. RIP and rise in glory.
  • RIP, Jay Kay from Jamariqui's dad

    RIP. A true entertainer.  There was a terribly sad interview he did on radio a few months agoabout how lonely he was and rarely went out any more since stopping work  A bit of a tear jerker for its honesty from a chap who seemed to be a larger than life, sociable character.  Worth listening to if you can find it as an insider to how many elderly must feel.

    Like many things involving media personalities, it will depend on your opinion of the person involved. Hence the mixed views.

    Apparently it was her "quiet words" in someones ears that had him sacked by C4

    Ah I see.  did a bit of research online, but couldn't find anything that I felt would warrant some of the reactions I saw on twitter 
  • A real racing character. RIP
  • Eccentric person, sister who met him many times as she owns race horses, said he was a lovely guy off camera and extremely knowlageable.

    he wasn't sacked, a TV company took over the broadcasting rights and he wasn't kept on

    I remember he used to call her 'the ravishing Clare Balding'
