    Sad news. The dreaded bloody cancer takes another one. It's not looking good to be a celebrity this year.

    R.I.P Terry.

    He's another one of those people who's always been around and you just don't expect to go quite yet.

    He was a true broadcasting legend.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    El Tel is gone. Just when you think he'd still be there presenting Radio 2 for the next 20 years.
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    And frighteningly it's still barely February. Just shows how much of a curse cancer's become. The Wogan's one of those celebrities you can't imagine the world being without until they leave it, then they do and it's worse for it.
