I shall never forget, as Mrs. Merton, asking Debbie Daniels, "What attracted you to millionaire Paul Daniels.

Tragically young to die. So very sad. We've lost too many good'uns this year, haven't we? sad

Oh no, how sad. How many more of our lovely, popular celebrities will we lose the end of the year? sad 😨

Perhaps because I feel I am living on borrowed time I am unable to watch Victoria Wood as I feel she died so young and now I feel just the same about Caroline Aherne.
Talent is such a wonderful gift and to see it wiped out depresses me so much. RIP to them both,

RIP Caroline.

She was so talented. What a shock - I assume she kept things quiet.

I'm reminded of Linda Smith, another really funny and talented girl who died young.

I had no idea she was ill - so very, very sad. Such a turbulent personal life, with so many struggles. RIP Caroline.

Saw the clip where she said her Mum told her only special people get cancer and as she now had it in her bladder and lungs, she must be very special. To Caroline and to all the 'special' people. wine RIP to a great comedy talent. flowers
