You know when your getting on, when all the actors you grew up with in one form or another are dying off.

Not one of my favourite actors but still sad to see these icons of TV go.

One of the greats. His canon was enormous, such was his range and adaptability.

I put a green roof on the gym in his garden, had a brief chat with him, thoroughly nice guy and an amazing actor.

RIP indeed

I used to like it when the kids said, "I'll have a 'p' please Bob".

No, no you're thinking of Bob Hope.

Bob Hoskins is a totally different Bob.

Bob Hope was the guy from way back who used to hang around with Bing Crosby, you know, David Bowies father. Bob Hope was married to Doris Day and they also had a son called Darren.....Darren Day.

When Bob Hoskins was advertising Bet365 during half time in the Champions League matches I didn't think he looked that well, I suspected something was wrong.

Bob Monkhouse was the golden shot and the lover of Doris Day
