    ^ As the previous post suggests he was one of England's finest ever cricketers.
    At one time he and Raquel Welch were related by marraige. Offspring of each having married.

    Cheers.
    I had posted right after RDN and had not seen the subsequent posts relating to who he was.
    RIP Fred...

    Really?
    Did you ever met him? I would be interested to hear more.
    I never met the bloke but can quite understand that people can be different people on and off air.
    I always liked his blunt approach on Test Match Special

    yes, i have met him a few times.

    In spain funnily enough while playing golf. Almost everyone revered him for his cricketing skills but he was well known as a cheating fucker - "finding" balls that were about 30 yards away from where everyone else thought, suddenly finding his lie improved when no one was looking........
