I just cried... sad

Another part of my childhood gone, we used to watch him on The Two Ronnies, and Sorry! 'Language Timothy!' can still be heard regularly here

Aw that's sad.

Aw, really sad to hear this. Part of my childhood too, especially loved his monologues and Timothy Lumsden... sad

His monologues were legendary.

What a bad year it's been so far. Keep singing to myself Bold Sir John and The Cleaning Ladies song since I heard. But feeling a bit teary.

The world is becoming a progressively sadder place.

Ronnie Corbett was great to watch; loved all his monologues in the big chair. Still watch the Two Ronnies christmas specials most years.

RIP sad

Lovely comedian, I shall light 4 candles to his memory!

Slug, apology, hadn't seen your post as I was looking for suitable emoji. I only found a cake with 3 candles ...

Sorry Slug, cross post

I used to love The Two Ronnies. Sorry was only on tele recently. Another star from my childhood gone.

Eliza22 Thu 31-Mar-16 21:13:04

I feel really sad. I'm at "that age" and so many of my childhood favourites have died recently.

Will be missed. A lovely chap.

sad when anyone dies but tbh I thought Barker was the star of the two and the real comedy came from the script writers- give them credit.

Backingvocals Thu 31-Mar-16 23:07:16

Loved the Ronnies.

Loved Bold Sir John sad

So doff
So doff
So doff your hat grin

Barker wrote a lot of the scripts under a false name, they didn't realise for a while.
