It was rumoured Wikins lost his coaching job at Chelsea as he was an alcoholic and that his bevvying had got out of hand and he had been battling it for a wee while although a they were just rumours so don't know how true.
. Still no age at all though really.
Only seems like yesterday when he and Kauto Star were battling it out, both are gone now.
Wonder what sort of age a racehorse usually lives to? don't know if 18 is good or bad.
I'm not sure, i think 18 is quite young for a horse.
It's gonna be a nightmare getting his coffin into the hearse....to me, to me, to me, to me...

It is with great regret that, following doctor’s advice, we’ve been left with no alternative but to cancel all forthcoming Chas & Dave shows. Chas is on the mend but progress is slow and he needs time to get back to fitness after a difficult year. We thank all our fans for the fantastic support and understanding you’ve shown in regard of the postponements and cancellations we’ve already had to make this year. We will see you all soon. Ticket holders will be informed via the respective venues regarding refunds.
Below is a statement from Chas:
In my life as a musician/entertainer I would say the most depressing thing to have to do is to have to cancel a gig or gigs. Fortunately, throughout my career of thousands of gigs with Dave or in other bands these times have been very few & far between, and only extreme illness in the past (and I mean extreme) illness has prompted me/us to have to make this decision.
So it is because of extreme illness on my part that the forthcoming gigs are going to have to be cancelled.
Briefly, recent check-ups have seen no sign of cancer but the treatment has left me well below par and it will be a slow but sure process getting me back to full strength.
Advisors say the beginning of next year should reveal a New Chas!
Hope those who are disappointed this year will come to see us sometime then.
(Chas & Dave)
Reading that, Chas seems a tough Cookie and seemed very optimistic, cancer really is a shit! RIP.
I actually thought he was long gone but obviously not the case.
RIP old timer.
