His agent said in a statement: “It is with great sadness we can confirm that on Monday, the actor John Sessions died at his home in south London. He will be hugely missed.”

Following the news of his death, many of his friends and fellow comedians paid tribute on Twitter.

The entertainment world also remembered the star...

After leaving the performing arts school RADA in the 1970s – where he studied with Sir Kenneth Branagh, a future frequent collaborator – John racked up plenty of high-profile appearances throughout his career.

This included voicing characters in the original run of Spitting Image and serving as a panellist on the radio incarnation of Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

He was also one of the co-creators and stars of the surreal mockumentary Stella Street – which ran for four series – and made repeated appearances on panel shows like QI and Have I Got News For You.
