Sad news this.
I know he was an eccentric, but Jimmy did a hell of a lot for charity over the years.
Off screen he did a lot of charity work, running 200 marathons and raising £40m over the years.
I also fondly remember his show Jim'll Fix It and his catch phrase 'Now then'.
His family programme, Jim'll Fix It, drew in huge audiences and the programme received 20,000 letters a week at the height of its popularity.
I got to meet him a couple of times on fun runs in my youth and he was always wearing a Gold track suit, weighed down with his copious amounts of Gold
R.I.P Sir Jimmy.
