I always enjoyed watching WIPEOUT on television. This daily afternoon quiz show was worth taping just to see the comedy genius of Bob Monkhouse at its best. Bob seemed to have a hilarious joke or anecdote on any given subject, he was a superb professional. When my eldest daughter Gemma Byrne appeared on WIPEOUT a few years ago, I was absolutely proud to see my daughter sharing the TV screen with such a master of the comic aside. Behind the scenes, Gemma told Bob that she'd seen him in DENTIST ON THE GO, a British comedy film when she was a little girl. "Don't EVER watch that film again Gemma, it's cr+p!". Bob Monkhouse graced our TV screens for four decades and I was very sad when he died, he was a true professional.
