A thoroughly nice bloke too and he was a big rugby league fan. I had the pleasure of his company, on occasion, watching Fulham RL in the '80s.

I saw him a few times supporting St Albans Centurions when we played there.

A face you'd certainly recognise, even if his name isn't familiar - the actor Maurice Roeves has died at the age of 83.

In over fifty years of television and film work, he memorably played Leeds United trainer Jimmy Gordon in 'The Damned United' (2009), Chief Supt Duckenfield in Jimmy McGovern's 'Hillsborough' (1996), Col Edmund Munro in 'The Last Of The Mohicans' (1992), and the character Vincent Diver in the tv mini-series 'Tutti Fruitti' (1987).

Guitar great and Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green has died aged 73.

For me the best British guitarist ever, bar none.
Spot on. He played more great guitar between 1966 and 1970 than anyother British guitarist has managed in a lifetime. Just played Then Play On and now onto Fleetwood Mac Live at the BBC. Sad day, but a wondrous legacy.

Actor John Saxon dies at age 83
Saxon’s wife confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter that the actor passed away on July 25 from pneumonia in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. His acting career spanned nearly 60 years and included iconic roles like Roper in the 1973 Bruce Lee classic Enter the Dragon, and a major part in Wes Craven’s Nightmare on Elm Street, a role he reprised in two other entries in the the franchise.

Olivia de Havilland, one of the last remaining stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood, has died at the age of 104.

De Havilland's career spanned more than 50 years and almost 50 feature films, and she was the last surviving actor from Gone with the Wind (1939).

The film earned her one of her five Oscar nominations.

De Havilland, who has lived in Paris since 1960, was central in taking down Hollywood's studio system, giving actors better contracts.

Many years ago I used to drink in a pub in Brentwood and Peter Green was a regular who would often provide musical entertainment. Needless to say he was incredible but also very unpretentious and a thoroughly decent man. Sadly, the pub, The Charles Napier is no longer with us either, having been demolished a few years ago to allow for road widening.
RIP Peter.

A vital part of my favourite ever comedy, that being Porridge. He was so loved by those who worked on it, that an inmate , albeit one that was never seen was given the name ‘Lotterby’, as a form of respect. When Porridge was revived a few years ago, ‘Lotterby’ was a main character.
RIP Sydney Lotterby...and thanks for the memories.
