Awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire).
Is well-known for his role in the radio comedy series, "The Navy Lark", in which he played various characters.
Although a fine comic actor in his own right, he is perhaps best known for his longstanding comic double-act with Ronnie Corbett as "The Two Ronnies".
Despite having to appear frequently in drag in "The Two Ronnies", he intensely dislikes dressing as a woman
He was one of the actors originally wanted for the part of Claudius in "I, Claudius" (1976)(mini), but it eventually went to Derek Jacobi.
Enjoyed working with Jon Pertwee on The Navy Lark and the two would often find themselves almost paralytic with laughter during rehearsals for the BBC radio comedy.
