Default Michael Parkinson "Parky" has died aged 88



Broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson has died at the age of 88, his family has confirmed.

His TV career spanned seven decades, and he interviewed the world's biggest stars on his long-running chat show.

A statement from Sir Michael's family said: "After a brief illness Sir Michael Parkinson passed away peacefully at home last night in the company of his family.

"The family request that they are given privacy and time to grieve."

The presenter revealed he was receiving radiotherapy treatment for prostate cancer in 2013, and said he got the all-clear from doctors two years later.

Very sad news but looked so frail recently
He lived local to me and owned a local successful pub a stones throw from Hestons fat duck restaurant

His son also had a pub not far from me but in the last two years that was closed , sold and been knocked down.

No one's emotional. I'd say, more respectful. But thanks for sharing a big negative.

RIP Parky.

Default Psalm 103

As for man, his days are like grass;

he flourishes like a flower of the field;

for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,

and its place knows it no more.
