John Noakes passes away at the age of 83 years old

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Cult children’s TV presenter John Noakes has passed away at the age of 83 years old following a battle with Alzheimers. The news was broken by his agent.

Noakes presented the show Blue Peter where he did many daredevil stunts for our entertainment. Family friend Wendy Downes told Mail Online: “John Noakes, died peacefully on Sunday morning May 28th:

“He had endured and suffered from Alzheimer’s over recent years and whilst he will be greatly missed by his wife, family and many friends his release from continuing ill health must be counted as a blessing.”
