Quite shocked about this. Lost a relative to the same cause at an equally young age.

JakeBullet Sat 20-Jul-13 14:53:10

GobbySadcase Sat 20-Jul-13 15:06:16

That's sad. He was such an amazing comedian.

Very sad. Saw Griff giving a speech recently and thought of Mel.

Gobby, it's showing a sceptical face.

GobbySadcase Sat 20-Jul-13 15:20:20

Ooh. Have reported as tech issue, cheers.
I am really sad about this. Grew up with Alas Smith & Jones and was only recently watching NtNocN.

Mistyshore Sat 20-Jul-13 15:20:58

Very sad. We lost my dad at a similar age a few years ago from a heart attack. I remember watching Alas Smith and Jones as a teenager with my dad and it being one of his favourites. The news just made me shed a little a tear for Mel's family and my own sad

oh sad

TerribleTantrums Sat 20-Jul-13 15:23:01

I was just watching Not the 9 O'clock news last night, and talking to H about how that was my formative comedy, I loved it in my teens and still remember loads of the sketches now. sad How very sad that he has died.

I so often quote sketches from 'Not the Nine O'clock News' as I meander through life.
Very sad news - great loss to entertainment. RiP Mel sad

alemci Sat 20-Jul-13 16:34:50

Oh no, love Mel Smith.

JakeBullet Sat 20-Jul-13 16:45:45

Apparently he has been ill for some time according to....er....someone. Think it was GRJ.

He said that for Mel it was probably a release.

SoupDragon Sat 20-Jul-13 16:52:45

Oh my goodness - how sad. I knew he had heart problems sad

I remmeber Alias Smith and Jones. I loved him in that video he did with Kim Wilde as well. RIP.

I was shocked to see this today, Not The 9 O'Clock News is my favourite sketch show of all time, I used to video it and watch it over and over. I can quote it endlessly. A sad loss.

Awww!!! Just saw it on Femail. So said. Those of us of a certain age used to love him.....when there were only 4 channels on tv.
