  1. Oh no!
    Gibbo was my absolute favourite as a kid. I used to drive everyone crazy singing the theme song from The Space Cadets.
    There’s something very special about the connection you get with certain performers when you’re a kid.
    Thanks for all the laughs, Gibbo.

  2. Gibbo was truly a great talent, as Jamie said “hilarious 100%” & a lovely man too. All the best to Carol & family. Thanks for posting David.
