DES O'CONNOR CBE
Sending deepest sympathies and condolences to wife Jodie and all Des' family and loved ones on the news of his very sad passing at the age of 88. One of the UK's most loved and greatest entertainers, Des was a good friend and great admirer of Joe's talent, inviting him to perform on his shows many times. Des graciously wrote this tribute to Joe last year , which is on display in Joe's Museum. "It was always great to have Joe Longthorne as a guest on 'Des O’Connor Tonight' because I knew that whatever ‘name’ I asked Joe for we would get it in the studio. He had a vast and wonderful catalogue of uncanny impressions of celebrities - including one of me'. Rest In Peace Des.
