7 July 1941 (age 80)
Bill Oddie (born 7 July 1941) from Rochdale, England is a popular British TV personality and well known ornithologist.
Before his TV and acting career, he tried his hand at becoming a pop star in 1966, releasing various singles and one album, much to little chart success. His singles started to parody other popular hits which, in part, led him to become a member of 1970's BBC comedy act, The Goodies, with Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor. The trio had a string of hit singles, most notably Funky Gibbon in 1975.
