RIP Jack Sugden
« on: July 05, 2008, 03:19:29 PM »


I don't watch Emmerdale in modern times.

But I did love it when it was more focussed on farming and local village issues....with real characters like Mr Wilkes, Amos Brearley, Seth)

I was very sad to learn of Jack Sugden's (Clive Hornby) passing this week.  RIP
In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

It was a bit of a surprise. Any news on what he actually had?

had been suffering from cancer for a while, and apparently was in a hospice when he died.

he had been keeping everything very private, so I guess this is why his passing was such a shock to the public.

At least he got some privacy, unusual these days.

yes, I have to say that I really detest modern *celebs* who live their entire lives out on the gossip magazines each week (jade went to a disco, jade bought a house, jade went for a poo, etc). 

I have to say, as Brian Wilson put it best, I just wasn't made for these times.
