For Sean Hughes, who has died aged 51.

My sister and I loved Sean's Show. So out there. I've been singing the theme tune since I found out yesterday. R.I.P

You couldn't go anywhere without hearing a Cranberries song when I was a youngster or so it seemed. Poor Dolores.

R.I.P to Cyrille Regis too. A relatively young man. Such a shame.

61 is too soon. Tonight I would like to see an actual minutes silence for him but I bet we get a minutes applause. It saddens me that we have to have them because there are people who can't shut up for one minute.

In Italy they've always done a minute's applause as long as I can remember, although I don't know the original reasons for that. It's become much more common in the UK though to drown out the idiots. I think people in England were a lot better at observing these things 20 years ago.

I remember Ray Wilkins as a pundit on Football Italia mostly when I was growing up. It was quite sad seeing him be interviewed in that documentary on Saturday knowing the health problems he'd had since filming that. RIP.
