Bob Monkhouse OBE
5' 10" (1.78 m)
Did You Know?
Next Thursday at the polls, it won't just be Bob it'll be Britain saying Opportunity Knocks
(1956). And if we put Maggie (Margaret Thatcher
) back in for the third time we'll all be winners. (During the 1987 general election campaign)
Bob died of prostate cancer in 2003. Yet in 2007 he made a "comeback", appearing in a new TV campaign advertising a prostate cancer charity. The ad, made with the blessing of his widow, blends footage of Monkhouse with that of a body double then adds CGI manipulation of his face to match what is being spoken by a sound-alike.
The thief of bad gags.
