The comedian, writer and actor Barry Cryer has died at the age of 86.
Famed for his gifted performances on BBC Radio 4’s panel show I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, Cryer also wrote for Sir Bruce Forsyth, the Two Ronnies and Morecambe and Wise.
The League of Gentleman star Mark Gatiss said: “Barry Cryer was the real deal. An incredibly funny man who worked with – and wrote for – the giants of comedy.
“Yet he remained forever curious and delighted by whatever was fresh and original. Kind, encouraging, generous and a one-off. Goodbye, Cheeky.”
