RIP Keith Chegwin

RIP Keith Chegwin
Veteran presenter Keith Chegwin has died, aged just 60. For many people of a certain age Chegwin was a fixture of their childhood, and 7 year old MediaMonkey is crying at this news.
Chegwin has been struggling with a lung condition called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis for a long time, and this recently got much worse. Here’s the official statement: 
“We are heartbroken to share the news that Keith Chegwin sadly passed away following a long-term battle with a progressive lung condition, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which rapidly worsened towards the end of this year.
Keith died peacefully at home shortly after midnight on the 11th of December. His wife Maria, his daughter Rose and his son Ted were by his side. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Severn Hospice for the kindness, support and care they have shown us all over the last few weeks.
Keith was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. We would respectfully ask to be left to mourn his passing in private.”
Cheggers will always Play Pop.
