Nicholas Parsons dies at 96
« on: January 28, 2020, 11:44 »
Broadcaster Nicholas Parsons has died at the age of 96 after a short illness, his agent has confirmed.

Parsons had hosted Radio 4's Just A Minute since its inception in 1967.

"Nicholas passed away in the early hours of the 28th of January," said a statement issued on behalf of his family by his agent Jean Diamond.

"He was with his beloved family who will miss him enormously and who wish to thank the wonderful staff at the Stoke Mandeville Hospital."

Utterly inimitable.  Just A Minute will never be the same again.

Well, he was 96 and had an exceptionally long career.  At one time he seemed to appear in every movie so he must have made a great deal of money.   :rip:
