We are losing so many greats of comedy and music in 2016.
So sad to hear today that a true genius comedy writer and actress Caroline Aherne has died at the age of 52.
Aherne, star and writer of The Royle Family and The Mrs Merton Show, was born to Irish parents and two years ago had been diagnosed with lung cancer, having previously had bladder and eye cancer.
Aherne was also the narrator of Channel 4’s Gogglebox and appeared in The Fast Show in a variety of guises.
The Bafta award-winning writer and comedy actor died earlier today at her home in Timperley, Greater Manchester. She was 52.
- Here is our small tribute and suggest you google and watch past episodes of the classic The Royle Family which she co-wrote and starred in. We loved her in The Fast Show and as Mrs Merton. See below.
and we all have watched Mrs Merton and loved her as she ripped her guests apart …
Caroline Aherne will be sadly missed.
