I'm so pleased to hear that Dilly. From the odd bits of footage i've seen of him where he's not performing, he comes across as very humble and almost shy. I'm glad my illusion hasn't been shattered!
Just remembered my Dad telling me that he once met the late, great Sid James back in the 60's, when he was delivering beer to a pub or club (my Dad, that is ~ not Sid!) He insisted on buying my Dad and his workmate a drink and my Dad said he was not only great company, but was completely down-to-earth too and just as comical in real life as he was on screen.
