Sad to see that the actor Geoffrey Hughes passed away yesterday after a battle with cancer. Probably best known for his role as Lovable binman Eddie Yates in Coronation street, and also as Onslow in Keeping up appearances. RIP Geoffrey. http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/coronation-street-star-geoffrey-hughes-dies-aged-68-7984841.html

Very sad to learn of his passing. One of the very finest character actors this country has ever produced and he will be missed very much indeed. RIP.
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Eddie Yates was brilliantly portrayed.

Seemed like a lovely bloke and did enjoy him in Corrie all those years ago, when he lived with Stan and Hilda.

Coronation Street was part of the cultural fabric back then.  Does anyone still watch it these days.  :-\

Some people say they've seen angels,
I've seen United,
That's enough.

Bill Maynard?

I do remember him fondly in Corrie.  He was perfectly cast as Twiggy in The Royle Family also; when he compliments the "nice buffet" without the "t" being silent, that always has me in stitches. :)
