    Jeremy Lloyd, co-creator of BBC comedies 'Allo 'Allo! and Are You Being Served?, has died aged 84.




    Lloyd died in hospital after being admitted for pneumonia, his agent said.

    He worked with fellow comedy writer David Croft on the popular comedy series set in a department store, which ran from 1972-85.

    His agent Alexandra Cann said: "Jeremy was a great wit and always a mass of original ideas.

    "He had a wonderfully original mind and will be greatly missed."

    Actress Vicki Michelle, who starred in 'Allo 'Allo! as sultry French waitress Yvette Carte-Blanche, said via Twitter that Lloyd was "such a wonderful talent, mentor and friend. A complete joy to work with."

    Lloyd was married three times, including to the actress Joanna Lumley for a short period in 1970.

    Lumley wrote about their brief union: "He was witty, tall and charming - we should have just had a raging affair."

    Six months ago he married his third wife, Lizzy Moberly, who Lloy

    Coventry-born actress Billie Whitelaw passed away last weekend at the age of 82.



    She won two BAFTA awards and was made a CBE in 2001. Her successful stage and screen career spanned more than 60 years, with the part of Mrs Baylock - the sinister and demonic governess in "The Omen" (1976) - being perhaps her most memorable role. Her final film was the comedy "Hot Fuzz" in 2007.

    Detroit Red Wings and ice hockey legend Gordie Howe has passed away. His health has been declining for years and recently suffered a stroke. He played 25 seasons for the Red Wings and and 33 seasons of professional hockey in all. He is notorious for playing a professional game in 6 different decades. His first season was 1945 and his last was 1980, but he played in one game in 1997, at the age of 59, for the Detroit Vipers. He scored 801 NHL goals in his career, which is second all time IIRC, behind only Wayne Gretzky. He was also 9th on the all time assists board. He helped the Red Wings lift four Stanley Cups during his career. Some know him from his "Gordie Howe Hat Trick". This is not three goals in a single game, but rather a goal, an assist and a fight within the same game. He was renowned for his physical play and skill, assisted by his 6', 200lb frame (which in his era, was probably monstrous).

    RIP Mr. Hockey

    RIP Caroline Aherne

    RIP Caroline Aherne, passed away yesterday, aged 52. A really talented lady, a comedy writer and actress. My favourite memories of her have to be her role as Denise in the Royle family and also The Mrs Merton show, she was never shy to ask questions in her role as Mrs. Merton.

    I agree with all you say '71. I also loved her in The Fast Show, particularly her 'scorchio' weather reports.

    RIP Caroline Aherne.

    I only just noticed recently (on youtube) that the actor David Swift had passed away this year.
    Most people might not know who he is or was as an actor, but I loved his role as the ageing balding randy news presenter Henry Davenport, in the hit Ch4 sitcom Drop the dead donkey.

    Here he is in this pic with his nemesis on that show, the awful Sally Smedley lol

    Ive also recently noticed that Pete Burns passed away last month. He was the lead singer of the group Dead or alive, and they famously did the song 'You spin me right round, like a record...'


    This was him in about 1988-89 when they were at the top of their careers.

    Sad news and RIP Andrew Sachs. Fawlty Towers is one of my favourite all time comedies. Andrew Sachs played the part of Manuel so well and teamed up well with John Cleese.
