And tragically, fellow Python Terry Gilliam says he now struggles to remember his friends and admits the actor has “moved into another world”. Both actors formed part of BBC comedy troupe Monty Python starring John Cleese, 78, Eric Idle, 75, Terry Jones , 76, and Graham Chapman, 48.

"We, his wife Anna, children Bill, Sally, Siri and extended family would like to thank Terry's wonderful medical professionals and carers for making the past few years not only bearable but often joyful.
