One of the best. Sad. This man had political honour and always respected him

Terry and June felt dated even back in the 70s

She was one of those people who's been cropping up in TV programmes and in voice acting roles for my entire life, but when I tried to name any upon reading of her death I struggled. I never watched Terry and June (it clearly didn't have the timeless quality that the likes of Dad's Army and Fawlty Towers had), which seems to be what most remember her for. It still feels like a loss though; she's been so ubiquitous in British entertainment that it's sad I'll never think "Oh it's June Whitfield" again.

A bad day for British comedy:

Jeremy Hardy was a staple of the Radio 4 comedy greats; I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, Just a Minute and The News Quiz, and he featured frequently on TV panel shows. He was one of my favourite comedians. He was only 57.

Clive Swift played the unfortunate husband of Lady of the House Hyacinth Bucket in the brilliant 90s sitcom Keeping Up Appearances.
