    He was so much more than a TV personality - Just looking on Wiki - Some of his achievements
    - Raised $60m for Charity
    - On the 1st and last Top of the Pops (popular UK music show 1964-2006)
    - 300 professional bike races
    - 212 marathons
    - 107 pro wrestling fights
    - Yorkshire County Cricket Clubs' 2nd XI
    - Conscripted to work in the coal mines
    - Jim'll Fix It TV show (1974-1994)
    - 'Invented' twin deck disco
    - BBC Radio 1 DJ for 19 years
    - and there is probably much more

    now then now then....

    he was a strange one tho really -

    he didnt come over all that well on Louis Theroux -

    he was a gentlemen of a certain era and I think he had some big secrets that he struggled with....

    he ran a shed load of marathons and did make a lot of kids happy...

    84's not a bad innings? he will be remembered I think....

    seems a lot have passed this year

    Quite an understatement
    He seemed to be one of the few people Louis didn't get along with, can't wait for more of Mr Theroux to hit the airwaves!
