I know she's always the butt of jokes nowadays, but Betty White. When she does die i'm sure i'll shed a tear.

Yes, Bruce Forsyth, Ronnie Corbett and Ken Dodd spring to mind as the last links to the old era of entertainment.

The last two Beatles dying will be similar in musical terms.

Lots of people who were famous in the 50s/60s/70s and really represent that time are all heading towards their twilight years now.

I'm old enough to remember when Charlie Chaplin died and how people reacted then.

Bruce Forsythe is the last of the old school family entertainment stars that is still regularly seen on TV, so his death or enforced retirement (due to ill health) would be a big media thing. Ronnie Corbett, Ken Dodd are lower profile but they will still make headlines (like Richard Briers recently).

In broadcasting terms, David Attenborough - obviously. A big thing will be made of his death.

Last of the great American singers? Bruce Springsteen fans might have something to say about that. Last of the old school easy listening singers might be a better way of putting it.

I wish he would retire...........and take Sir Paul with him.
They were both shockingly dreadful at the Jubilee Concert.

Somebody should have known better than to invite them. You can't blame them for turning up to an invitation.

And even having said that, were they actually worse than Cheryl Cole, who doesn't even have old age as an excuse?

It'll be a sad day indeed. One of the true greats of broadcasting, nobody comes close to replacing him.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Jubilee Concert and when it finished I switched on the coverage from Five Live.

CC was torn to shreds and they were even replaying how out of tune she was.

To put it into perspective though, CC has never been generally known for her 'talent' unlike the aforementioned Sirs.
I'd rather they retired rather than see either of them murdering their old classics again.

..........and whilst I'm on the subject ()..........Sir Paul was even worse at the Olympic Closing Concert than he was at the Jubilee Concert.

I've often wondered who I actually like because I can churn out negativity readily.

I love David Attenborough though and he'd better not die/retire any time soon.

When Attenborough dies the BBC will make an even bigger deal of it than they did with Jimmy Savile.

I'm not about to disagree with you on his performance, something went horribly wrong but here is another live performance from last year and I think he sounds terrific.
