We heard with sadness this morning of the death of Frank Whitten. Best known for his role as Ted West (Grandpa) on Outrageous Fortune, Whitten lost a short battle with cancer.
We weren't great fans of Outrageous Fortune. We'll remember Frank Whitten more for his appearance in what became an iconic series of beer commercials, beginning with this one including the famous line "She's a hard job finding the perfect woman, boy":
RIP Frank Whitten. We will toast your life and your passing with a cold glass of James Speight's finest - good on ya mate!
