Seems the older stars are leaving us. Loved Bill Maynard's comedy characters a real genius. Selwyn Frogget's catch phrase 'magic our Morris' always came after another disaster.

Like all great comedy actors he played himself, always just beyond 'normal' and just so funny. No one seemed to notice that Selwin did not have a welsh accent although his brother did!

Dead but not forgotten thankfully he left a large portfolio of his works behind.

Rest in Peace.
