Any other 'I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue' fans out there?

I received the following e-mail this morning from the BBC's ISIHAC mailing list:

"Dear I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Mailing List Member,

I was expecting to announce the venues and dates of recordings in the
Spring series of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue", but unfortunately I've
had to put these plans on hold as Humphrey Lyttelton has been detained
in hospital for an operation to repair an aortic aneurysm.

We are unclear precisely how long Humph's recovery period will be, but
it seems very likely that the Spring Series of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A
Clue" will have to be postponed.

Humph is otherwise fine and in very good spirits. However, if you
wish to write him a get well message, send him an email to this
address with the subject 'Get Well Humph' and I'll print it off for
him. I imagine it'll be nice for him to have something to read in his
hospital bed.

There's no need to worry if you have tickets for our "I'm Sorry I
Haven't A Clue" Tour Show at the Bournemouth Pavilion this Tuesday
(22nd April). I'm delighted to say that ISIHAC favourite Rob Brydon
has kindly agreed to deputise for Humph.

With best wishes,

Jon Naismith
Producer, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue"

Thanks for sharing this, hope everything goes well for him.

Do you feel like sharing this on ? I know they'd all be interested.
Thanks a lot for sharing, I forgot I'd changed email addresses and forgot to get on their mailing list again.
Much love for Humph.
So sad to hear of his death. Only saw him in concert the other week. Such a sad loss of a great musician, comedian and utterly lovable guy.

The last two recordings I went to, I got an usher to tell me where the back entrance was and managed to talk to him. I even got some hugs. I'm so pleased I got the chance to do so.
I have a fairly large collection of ISIHAC recordings but would love to complete it so if anyone wants to compare collections and play swapsies just drop me a line :)
