What he has died today?
oh dear how sad. I have to say that programme was very sad too.
And funny.
But I did come away thinking he had made a mistake in his handling of the daughter meeting.
The cooking programmes could stand repeating couldn't they.

I had the great pleasure of meeting him many years ago when he stayed with my family for the weekend, he was heard to ask if anyone had a mallet to shut me up!! wink

I met him -and interviewed him later -about 20 years ago (he had launched a video on hangover cures). He was just like you'd expect from the prorammes.
What a shame.

I thought the programme last night was incredibly sad. I especially felt for his daughter.

I watch that James Martin thing of a Saturday morning sometimes and always love the Keith Floyd bits

och, that's a shame. i hope he enjoyed his last wee run of attention and affection.

Aw this is so sad,i loved his cookery programmes especially the xmas one where he,d put the turkey in the oven and said it was time to get p*ssed!!!!

RIP. i hope they repeat his programmes.

Very sad - the prog last night was difficult to watch - a great man in decline.

I couldn't believe, when I googled the news, that the Sun said he'd died of 'bowl cancer'. A Freudian (Floydian) slip if ever I heard one...

Oh no- what a sad day, Keith Floyd and Patrick Swayze- it's too much.

FlappyTheBat Tue 15-Sep-09 10:35:49

That is really sad, I loved watching his cookery programmes and enjoyed his enthusiasm for something that he obviously loved.

Will have a glass or two of wine for you later!

RIP Keith.

I watched Keith on Keith last night and thought it was very flat - got the impression Keith Allen felt it hadn't worked either.

How bizarre that the programme was broadcast only yeasterday. I just started another thread on it.
poor Floydy.

Sorry, didn't spot this thread earlier.

Great comments from other TV chefs.

I have mostly positive memories (no TV for a while) and will certainly toast him with a glass or two of wine.

I remember when he used to frequent the same pub as us in Ireland (he lived there for a bit...)
