The same damn thing happened with the Queen Mother.

People thought she would live forever, but in the end she let us all down very badly.

False alarm. We'll know it's real when the tabloid headlines say "Baked Bean Brown Bread."

Twitter rumours tonight about a very significant death, all stemming from a screen grab from a WhatsApp group with an interesting profile pic.

My kids are saying the queen is dead!

Robert George Dylan Willis.

Genuinely very sorry to hear of his passing and to be honest it came as a bit of a shock to me, as I hadnít been aware he was ill.

Was a leading figure in the 1981 Ashes Test Series - one of the great Test Series of all time - but his contribution tends to be overshadowed by Botham's herculean efforts.  His 8-43 at Headingly in Australia's second innings ensured an English victory in what was a pivotal test.

My recollection is that the crowd had started to shout ďCome on BobĒ as he ran in, during that series, to the extent that it would reach a crescendo of noise! Great memories of a great series.

In latter years he was an unforgiving critic of the England cricket team when things were going badly and I used to enjoy watching him on Sky, giving his thoughts.

May He Rest In Peace.
