Andrew Sachs?

  Bingalau 20:52 03 Jun 10

I have just had a bet with my sone that I read somewhere that Andrew Sachs had died. Can anybody confirm this for me please?

Odd thing to bet on but as far as I know he is still alive and kicking.

folsom. We were having ageneral discussion about old TV shows etc. when it came around to talking about "Manuel" and of course the wonderful Berlin born actor who played him. I said "Oh I'm sure he died last week" This was poo-poohed and of course I stuck to my guns that I had read it either in a newspaper or on the internet. I said maybe the election had smothered such items of news last week and I was certain I had read it. So we ended up having a small wager on it. Trying to find out is a different matter. But I know we have the people here who will know for certain. By the way I also read that he was eighty years old when he died.

Another victory for senile decay!

Last week a computer-less relative of mine reckoned that Bill Maynard (of Selwyn Froggitt fame) died years ago, and wouldn't believe me when I told her she was wrong. Showed her the IMDB entry for him, and I still don't think she's convinced.

Thanks to all for the news that he is alive and kicking, I've paid up and taken note of all the good advice... Senile decay is about right I reckon. But will I learn to keep my trap shut in future? I will probably have forgotten this lesson in a week's time.
