Kenneth Kendall, the former BBC newsreader and Treasure Hunt gameshow host has died, aged 88.

The presenter died in hospital in Newport on the Isle of Wight today.

His agent, Jeremy Hicks, said he had suffered a stroke in recent weeks and never recovered.

Kendall's partner of many years, Mark Fear, said he passed away peacefully.

The couple owned an art gallery on the island after Kendall retired from television.

Kendall, who was born in India, started work at the BBC as a radio announcer before moving on to television in the 1950s where he became well known as a newsreader and a mainstay of the organisation until he left in 1981.

Lots of elderly ppl become very ill or pass away at this time of year, us homecarers always dread the period from October to March, whether it's down to the cold weather, we don't know, but the elderly are more susceptible to flu, chest infections, bronchitis and pneumonia in winter, even more so if they have respitory problems.

Still doesn't protect them from catching germs lol! Take the Norovirus for example, it's known as the Winter Sickness Bug, my daughter has just had it....it can be caught so easily, the virus stays on surfaces for days, so if someone on a bus or train, shop, wherever has not washed their hands after going to the toilet and has the bug....whatever they touch, that bacteria stays there for days....you touch that spot where they touched and at some point put your hand to your mouth or eat food, say a slice of bread...you've put that bacteria into your system....

So many ppl cough, sneeze without covering their mouths, they don't wash their hands often enough and I'm sounding very OCD, but if I wasn't trained in cross infection control, I would've caught the Norovirus from my daughter, but I cleaned every surface, light switches, door handles and anything that she could've touched....and I didn't get it Laughing

I should imagine the food storage wasn't too clever in those days either, and way who would want to eat when in agony having legs, arms etc sawn off with no anesthetic?? I would'nt want a BigMac Quarter Pounder after that lol!
