Jim Bowen dies
« on: March 14, 2018, 15:20 »
Jim Bowen, who presented the cult darts-based game show Bullseye, has died at the age of 80.

Family friend John Plews told Sky News that Bowen died on Wednesday morning with his wife Phyllis by his side.

"He passed away very peacefully, she was with him. We are all shedding a tear. It wasn't completely unexpected, he's been ill for several weeks in hospital," he said.

It's only by catching clips of it now, you realise just how tacky Bullseye actually was!   But I think he was quite a good comic.  He had that sort of forlorn face which I always find quite amusing.   ;D
