Mel Smith has died.

Comedian and writer Mel Smith has died of a heart attack, age 60.
I used to love him and Griff Rhys Jones in "Alas Smith and Jones".
Very sad, no age at all.
RIP.

So sad. I remember the whole family laughing together at Not the Nine O'clock News and Alas Smith & Jones.

Re: Mel Smith has died.

What a shame. Yes the two of them were so funny. But sadly Mel always looked like a candidate for an early heart attack,

Re: Mel Smith has died.

It has been reported that he suffered from poor health in recent times - at least it seemed he passed peacefully in his sleep..
