  • User AvatarMiriam { Oh my goodness, what dreadfully sad news. I just came back here after going down a nostalgic x-factor rabbit hole and I’m so shocked and really upset for all of Daniel’s friends and family. I enjoyed this site so much and loved reading his (and everyone’s) comments. I hope everyone is ok. } – 28 July 2021 at 11:56 pm

  • User AvatarJoe Mevorah { Daniel and I were good friends for most of the last 15 years. The last time we were in touch was a month before his death. I’ve not checked the sofa bet sight, and have had holiday greetings strangely go unanswered. I now understand why! Just today I received a random tweet from Daniel/sofabet, and am completely distraught, and unnerved by this news. Daniel was a brilliant man, with a wonderful and adventurous spirit. Moreover, his even keeled temperament has always been amongst the wonderful qualities I most admired in him. My sincerest condolences go out to his family. } – 18 May 2020 at 7:44 pm
  • User AvatarChris Bellis { Nice to read the more recent memories from people who knew Daniel in person. I missed him last season. He was always so reasonable, and defused with such diplomacy one or two over-heated discussions between regular posters. Not everybody agreed with my criticisms of the UK entries over the years, and perhaps one or two people thought I was being unpatriotic. Daniel intervened a couple of times and acted as a skilled moderator. I still say laying the UK in Eurovision is the nearest thing to free money you will ever see, but that's another story. Daniel could soothe troubled waters with ease. In another life he could have been a UN negotiator. Daniel is very much missed. } – 2 January 2020 at 5:44 pm
