Tim Brooke-Taylor dead: Comedian and The Goodies actor, 79, dies of coronavirus 3

Comedian Jack Dee, who hosts I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, said: “It has come as devastating news to hear that Tim has succumbed to this dreadful virus – especially when we all thought he was recovering.

“Tim was a delightful man and never anything but great company. It has always been one of the great joys of my career to work with someone who was part of the comedy landscape of my childhood.”

The funny man also said: “I can’t bear the thought of introducing ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’ without being able to say ‘And on my right, Tim Brooke-Taylor…’

“Tim brought a unique quality to Clue. He was a proper team player, very generous as a performer, never egotistical and always more than delighted to set himself up as the butt of the joke.”

Jack added: “It’s always heartbreaking to lose a loved one, but these times have created the cruellest of circumstances for that to happen in and my thoughts are with his wife Christine and all his family.”

Among the many famous faces paying tribute, comedy writer Simon Blackwell tweeted: “Heartbreaking news about Tim Brooke-Taylor. Filled so many people’s childhoods with massive laughs, and then kept doing so for decades afterwards. Condolences to his family and friends.”
