    Posted March 11, 2012

    Australian entertainer Ian "Turps" Turpie has reportedly died following a battle with cancer. He was 68.

    Turpie's brother Paul Turpie from Ian Turpie Management said he could not confirm or deny the report when contacted by AAP on Sunday.


    Fellow game show hosts John Burgess and Larry Emdur took to Twitter to express their condolences.

    "Very sad day with the news, we've lost good mate Ian Turpie, I had the honour of calling Turps, mate,our deepest sympathies to Jan & family," Burgess said.

    "So many jokes to tell, so many yarns to spin, so many game shows to host and never enough time.. RIP Ian "TURPS" Turpie, best Price host ever." Emdur tweeted

    RIP Turps.  Game shows will never be the same again!
