Shame. He was old, and 84 isn't a bad age. Had some life, didn't he? I remember reading a bit about him a while ago and he did all sorts over the years. Loved Jim'll Fix It as a kid as well. Have a video of Roddy Piper and Take That on it, and Jimmy and Shane Ritchie are doing commentary as Brian Dixon referees a 'match' between Piper vs a kid who wanted to wrestle. Really good it was. FSM and Power Slam should give it a mention at least.

 

Would this count as a wrestling personality's death? He did wrestle a few matches afterall.

Jim'll fix it is one of the best feel good tv shows ever made, suprised there's nothing like it today to be honest. Coupled with all his charity work he might have been a Shellsuit wearing cigar smoking (around kids at that) nut, but he's still one of those people this country can be proud of.

 

RIP Sir Saville.

I was going to say Jim'll Fix It was before my time, but wiki says it ended in 94(?) How did I NEVER see it?

 

My clearest memory of him is showing Louie Theroux how he washes out his underpants every night...

 

Anyway 84 is a good run. Im sure I'll hear more about his charity work on the news tonight
