I had no idea he was that old or the fact that he had suffered strokes. He seemed to be a very genial chap.

Must admit that I generally hate quiz shows but Bob had a special sort of charm that made Blockbuster a lot of fun - everyone loved him. (I can still feel myself getting hypnotised by those flashing hexagons) Thanks Bob! :) :thumb: ... :( :(

Very sad news...we used to watch blockbuster every week day while having our tea....i used to love taking the piss out of the posh bording school kids who used to come on the show with suits and boe ties.
Noone from my school was ever on blockbusters.

Most of them would have dressed up for the occasion though or been told what to wear by the show's producers or their school otherwise you would have got people going on with Fuck The Pigs t-shirts! :)
