Let's hope they do not make his coffin from yoghurt pots and sticky back plastic!

I am sure many of us were brought up on him and Val and Pete and Shep and that fucking tortoise (who name eludes me and who apparently died several times in hibernation).

Even better - never any rumours given he was at the height of his fame during 'those times' and indeed had access to many a youngster.

RIP - you were part of my childhood. I was never a Magpie watcher

The tortoise was Fred/Freda depending on the sex of the latest reincarnation.

Ahhh yes I remember now. Good lad was Fred or Freda

My tortoise died in hibernation so I buried it in the garden.  A few months later I tried digging it up for curiosity (well I was 7). It wasn't there
