If you are a fan of Have I got News for You, Harry Enfield and Chums, then you’d be sad to read that Harry Thompson has died at the age of 45.
He also wrote biographies of Peter Cook and Herge, the creator of Tintin. His first novel, This Thing of Darkness, was longlisted for the Booker Prize.
Mr Thompson was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer in April, despite never having smoked. The British Comedy Awards had planned to present him with a Jury’s Award for his outstanding contribution at its ceremony next month.
