Jeremy Beadle 1948 - 2008

No bad jokes, no play on words, I have no doubt that other sites will do this. I have heard last night that the celebrity entertainer and renowned prankster Jeremy Beadle has died yesterday from pneumonia aged 59, His wife Sue and close friends were at his bedside when he died. Jeremy Beadle best known for his TV shows You`ve been framed, Beadles about as well as many more was taken into hospital on Friday with problems.

Jeremy Beadle born on April 12th 1948 in Hackney East London had tried his hands an many things including Music promotion, he was the organiser and mastermind for the 1974 Bickershaw Rock festival. Later he hit the big time with the TV show Game for a laugh along with Matthew Kelly, Sarah Kennedy and Henry Kelly leading to him being known more for his practical jokes.

Beadle who was also honoured for his work with the Foundation for Children with Leukaemia as well as other charities. He was awarded the MBE in 2001.

Jeremy leaves his wife, daughters Cassie and Bonnie, and step children Leo and Claire, though I am sure he will be sorely missed by millions. My thoughts are with the Beadle family at this sad time.
