    As well as "the goodies", I will also remember him for the long running sitcom, "Me and My Girl" and as the host of the itv talent competition, "the fame game", in 1985.

    Comedian Tim Brooke-Taylor has died at the age of 79 with coronavirus, his agent has confirmed to the BBC.

    The entertainer, best known for The Goodies and I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, died on Sunday.

    Fellow Goodie star Graeme Garden said he was "terribly saddened by the loss of a dear colleague and close friend of over 50 years".

    "He was a funny, sociable, generous man who was a delight to work with," Garden said.

    "Audiences found him not only hilarious but also adorable. His loss at this dreadful time is particularly hard to bear, and my thoughts are with Christine, Ben, Edward and their families."

    Another very sad loss. Of his later work, I especially remember an excellent guest star role he had in One Foot In The Grave - I think 1997.

    Sorry to hear that news, he seemed to be a nice person

    My memories of the Goodies are scant, but I remember the PO tower in London, a large cat and a giant Dougall from the Magic Roundabout

    oh and the funky Gibbon!

    RIP Tim brooke Taylor x
