Popular comedian, actor  and host of the TV show Bullseye has died.


"Born Peter Williams in 1937, Bowen's career in show-business began in the 1960s when he began working as a part-time stand-up comedian before finding his big break on The Comedians, a series famed for discovering talent including Russ Abbott, Frank Carson and Roy Walker.
Bowen first presented Bullseye in 1981 which became one of ITV's best-loved game shows throughout the decade and into the 90s. Its final episode with Bowen as host aired in 1995."

I remember Bullseye, I think I read somewhere they wanted to bring it back.

He had a long life and his ending was quick.

I heard he had had years of ill health Mags.
Either way, he is at peace now.

In the space of 2 days, Ken Dodd, Stephen Hawkins and Jim Bowen have died.
Three sad losses.

Yes, they were all old though and enjoyed their life. I don't know how much Stephen Hawkins enjoyed his life, but what a genius he was.

It's like skittles, one down then more follow.
