No, Val Doonican (Michael Valentine Doonican) is still alive. He is retired and lives with his wife Lynn; they have two daughters, Sarah and Fiona. He divides his time between his homes in Buckinghamshire and Spain, and is enjoying the fruits of his years of work.
He became known as Val because, growing up in Waterford on the South East Coast of Ireland, there were too many Michaels, Mikes and Mickeys around for him to be instantly identifiable.
Val Doonican was born on 3rd February 1927 (age 87). He is an Irish singer who entertained millions with his Saturday night TV series for more than 25 years and has recorded around 25 Christmas specials.
Val is now a grandfather of two and his elder daughter Sarah is now a successful novelist, having scored some success in that field.
