Lionel Blair Died
Considered a showbiz legend and multigenerational TV star, Lionel Blair died surrounded by his family
The host of Give Us a Clue, Celebrity Big Brother’s main competitor, entertained British audiences on TV for more than six decades in his career, which came to an end this Thursday (4). The presenter’s press office said he died surrounded by his family. The information is from The Sun. The cause of death was not disclosed.
“He came of a very old age, he was loved by his family and I think he died in their company, which is lovely,” said one of his aides.
Henry Lionel Ogus was born in Canada and moved to Great Britain when he was just two years old, with his family settling in Stamford Hill. He began performing in plays as a child and fueled his early passion for acting while protecting himself from air raids during World War II.
The artist then attended the Royal Shakespeare Theater at the end of the war. Blair began acting as a dancer but decided to pursue an acting career in 1947. He then began his television career in the 1960s, where he performed on a number of variety shows with his dance troupe.
Blair has appeared in a number of films since 1953, including The Limping Man, The World of Suzie Wong, The Beauty Jungle, and Absolute Beginners. In addition to performing as a dancer and presenter on British TV, Blair has also hosted the Name That Tune quiz show.
The artist provided the choreography for the box office hits Jazz Boat and The Magic Christian in the 1960s.
In the West End, he played Child Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium and had roles in Lady Be Good Mr. Cinders and Pageant.
Between 1979 and the early 1990s, Lionel led teams on the ITV game show Give Us A Clue. Blair also appeared in the Beatles film A Hard Day’s Night as a choreographer.
Ever since he achieved fame, Lionel was passionate about TV. He walked into the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2014, where he became famous for being handcuffed to Ollie Locke of Made in Chelsea and had a big fight with Luisa Zissman.
Another of her most famous adventures was her appearance on Channel Five’s reality show The Farm, where she competed against pop star Mikey Green and model Emma Noble.
The actor appeared in the second series at The Real Marigold Hotel in 2017. The documentary followed eight retirees experiencing retirement living in India and, after a successful first series, a new batch was produced, this time in Kochi, southwest India.
Lionel appeared alongside TV cook Rustie Lee, singer Sheila Ferguson, presenter Bill Oddie, snooker ace Dennis Taylor, TV Dr. Miriam Stoppard, actress Amanda Barrie and actor Paul Nicholas.
