Andrée Melly (1932-2020)

Post by Brock »

The last surviving cast member of Hancock's Half Hour has died at her home in Ibiza. Her death at the end of January has only recently been reported:

She was also the first panellist to speak for the full 60 seconds on Just a Minute. TV and film appearances include The Benny Hill Show and The Belles of St Trinian's.

Last regular Hancock cast member. Peter Goodwright, who made occasional appearances, is still with us.

As far as I know, Peter Goodwright was only in the final radio episode ("The Impersonator"), but good to know that he's still around.

Sad to hear this, I always liked her in "HHH" and her appearances in films and TV.

What a great shame.

Sad news indeed. I can never hear or read the word "warlocks" ("It's true, I tell you!") without thinking of her.
