Oh is this real, someone in the office just told me that and I laughed in his face

Mainstay of children’s programming when I was growing up. RIP.

Loved him as a kid. Was less a fan of his joke thievery, but yes, a big loss for people of my vintage.

I remember we went on a family camping holiday in Devon, about 15 years ago. They were filming a section of GMTV at a neighbouring campsite and he was presenting it. We got up at 6am to watch Keith Chegwin present it. He fell over accidentally and was very amusing.

No, it’s real:

Great now I have to apologise

Awww man. Always seemed like a genuinely nice guy. Like, can’t imagine him being a prick to anyone*
*please don’t link articles of him being a prick to anyone. Keep him pure in my heart

I think he might be the first celebrity to die who got his penis out on terrestrial television.

Swap Shop, Cheggars Plays Pop, Saturday Superstore; grew up with him.

Obviously had a troubled time with alcohol but I got the impression he was one of the nice guys. Sad

Would probably go with Oliver Reed tbh

Wait, did he get nekkid on TV, or just films?

Ah no. He once sent me a lovely email. RIP. https://soundcloud.com/opseudonym/keith-chegwin-for-a-day

Films. Although I am now wondering…

Er yeah, get on it!

Very surprised that he was only 60. Assumed he’d been around forever
