    I wouldn't mind a bet that the combined IQ's of James and Miller would be greater than every tv presenter now on the box.

    RIP all.

  • Clever & Witty Man - RIP
  • Felt really sad to hear this. A little bit my childhood goes with him. Loved Clive James on TV. Just watched  a rerun of Clive James Postcard from London to wallow in nostalgia.

    His Sunday evening programme spawned things like "Celebrity get me out of here" with the mad shows from Japan. 
  • At one point this afternoon Margarita Prakatan was trending on twitter, just because of all the people reminiscing about her part in his shows :-) We always ended up watching his show or Dave Allen when visiting my Nan and Grandad on a Sunday, so that's another childhood icon of mine gone today. RIP

    I wouldnt mind a bet that the combined IQs of all the TV presenters now on the box would be less than James and/or Miller.
  • Enjoyed his witty tv monologues. From an era when we were young, fit and healthy.  

       RIP
         
  • He actually died a few days ago and his funeral has already taken place. 
  • Sunday night ITV in the 80s: spitting Image and/or Clive James. Fab.

    Enjoyed Clive's books as well.

    RIP
  • Man of words, fallible, loved people, loved beauty.
    Propper human.

    Rip
