Teletubbies’ Tinky Winky actor dies

Simon Shelton Barnes – best known for playing Tinky Winky in the BBC children’s TV show Teletubbies – has died. The father-of-three from Ampthill, Bedfordshire, died just four days after his 52nd birthday.

The Actor who has left a foot print on the memories of most 21st Century Parents we have now. Many were completely dependent on this man and his colleagues for some form of entertainment when DSTV wasn’t as rampant as it is right now.

The days when you have to finish up your chores before 4pm when TV will come on. We first of all see the coloured lines covering the entire TV while the station played songs of its choice.


After wards the national anthem will come on, and then TV officially opens. To think that he dies at such a tender age, could it be stress, or just nature taking it’s course?

We pray his family members get consoled by the almighty himself, thank you for your contribution to kids of this world.
