What a tragic loss to comedy coming as it does just after the loss of Ronny Barker.

Ronnie Barker died some years ago, I think you mean Ronnie Corbett?

That's a drag. She could be a very funny woman indeed. And 62? That's wretchedly young these days.

2016 is turning out to be a pretty bad year for the deaths of well-known people who bring joy to the world. We could do with a few well-known sociopaths kicking the proverbial bucket, if only to balance things a little.

I don't think I would have paid money to see her, she was kind of light entertainment "TV comedy"

Funny I wondered this morning who was next. Given year there's been. Wood's sad death is left field and a shocker

Now that he has a Secret Service detachment, I believe all buckets are being kept a safe distance from The Donald.

Gifted at observational humour, especially when it came to the English middle class. She could get a whole monologue out of the word 'lounge'.

Her mock soap segment " Acorn Antiques" was priceless in its humour.
