Peter Jones

This month it is 10 years since the sad death of this very funny man.

I've been listening to many of the older shows in the past few days and it confirms my view that the greatest panellists in the show have been Kenneth Williams and Paul Merton. But in third slot, I believe, is Peter Jones.

He's just such a funny man, not taking himself or the show too seriously, managing to get some fun into just about everything he says.

A great wit and raconteur, and dare I say it, a bit of a leader on the show.

And he's been gone for 10 years this month. Very sad.
