David Walliams also paid tribute, and said: “I was obsessed with ‘The Goodies’ as a child, the first comedy show I really loved.
“I queued up to get the Goodies’ autographs as a grown-up, and got to meet Tim Brooke-Taylor more recently at a party.
“I was in total awe, but he was so kind & generous. It is so sad he is gone.”
Tim, who was born in 1940 in Buxton, Derbyshire, was married to Christine Weadon, and they had two sons.
His wife’s statement read: “He died as he lived, looking wonderful.
“He simply tired in the end and he just closed his beautiful eyes and that was that.”
