We’re very sad to report that game show host Bob Holness has passed away at the age of 83.
Bob had suffered from a number of strokes and was living in a nursing home - he died peacefully in his sleep this morning.
Blockbusters made Bob a household name, and ran for 11 years between 1983 and 1994. Anyone who watched kids’ TV in the 80s will still chortle at the memory of Blockbusters contestants saying, “Can I have a ‘P’ please, Bob?” Bob was truly a TV legend to millions.
We’re sending our sympathy to Bob’s wife Mary, his three children and his grandchildren.
