    Ce? Manuel Passes Away.



    Andrew Sachs, best known for his role in the beloved 1970s sitcom Fawlty Towers, has died at the age of 86, according to reports.

    The actor, who starred as hapless Spanish waiter Manuel in the comedy about a gaffe-prone hotel, reportedly passed away in a care home last week.

    His wife Melody said he had been diagnosed with vascular dementia four years ago, but his condition had rapidly deteriorated in the days before his death.

    "My heart has been broken every day for a long time," Mrs Sachs told the Daily Mail.

    "It wasn't until the very end that it got very bad. He couldn't speak because he had vascular dementia - that means that you lose your speech but you don't lose your mind."

    He joins Brian Hall (Terry), Ballard Berkeley (Major Gowen), Joan Sanderson (Mrs Richards), Bruce Boa (Mr Hamilton of the Waldorf salad) and Conrad Phillips (Mr Lloyd of the Wedding Party) in the great thereafter. RIP, and thanks for the laughter.

    What killed him was that phone call Jonothan Ross made to him about his granddaughter, the BBC sacked Ross but it killed the old man.

    That was a shitty thing to do although it was over 8 years ago. It's said he suffered from vascular dementia. One of the causes, I read, is a series of minor strokes. It's quite possible that was caused by those cnuts Ross and Brand. I've always loathed those two shit stains anyway.

    I think it's a pity he's mostly remembered as a monosyllabic idiot wending his ham-fisted way through a grim and grey 1970s Britain although I do understand that many TD members like him because they were in a similar situation. Of course his situation was fictional.

    I shall always remember him best as Junior Postman Groat.

    He was a German. His middle name was Siegfried. His parents were refugees from the Nazis. Don't mention the war!
