For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember I ran a series of posts, Whicker Wednesday, with a piece about Alan Whicker and a picture of something made of wicker.
He passed away on July 12. I waited until today, as a 'final' Whicker Wednesday tribute, to a bloke I grew up watching on the telly with that unmistakable voice and a certain style.
He was a presenter and journalist, had a television programme on the BBC, Whicker's World, that ran for 30 years and, although he never married, was with his partner for over 40 years.
From what has been written since his passing, I believe he will be sadly missed.
A true gentleman.
