I took some time out thinking of the Peter Sallis tribute to pay respects to Simon Shelton who played Tinky Winky in the original series. I wish I could say the news is false but his family have confirmed the news via social media and I first heard it on Twitter. I'm probably the first on DeviantART to do a tribute to him.
Yes, it is sad. They just confirmed he froze to death so wrap up warm.
R.I.P. original Tinky Winky....
Thanks for paying respects.
of course i would...i loved Teletubbies as a kid
