RIP Lord Bath he’s died yesterday diagnosed with Covid19. So sad I always enjoyed his quirky style and the interviews he did for Animal Park with Ben Fogle and Kate Humble.

There'll be quite a procession of 'wifeys' as he called them,following his coffin.
He would have loved that!grin

Yes, I noticed that while reading the Mail online. I also enjoyed his eccentricities as he didn't seem to care about what people thought about his appearance and I liked that. RIP. Very sad.

Unfortunately not Alishka there are strict rules on the number of mourners allowed during this pandemic.

It is getting close to home now. My dil’s uncle is on a ventilator, extremely ill, and my DDs friend has recently lost her father to covid19.

He was a fascinating character, very colourful and avant-garde; led quite an "interesting" personal life. His wifelets all appeared to think well of him and remained on friendly terms long after their relationships had ended. His work on Longleat was pioneering at the time. He was definitely one of life's characters. RIP
