Very sad. I had not known this........

He was left seriously ill after a quad bike accident in 1998 which left him in a coma for several days

Yes I remember the quad bike accident. My son was a great fan of his back then.

He'll still be shocked to hear the news today, as I am myself.

What a shock!  RIP Rik, terrific comedian from my own generation.  Loved Alan B'stard in The New Statesman.

Just found out on Twitter - I'm devastated. Don't mind saying I just cried looking at his photo there, MrsC Sad
A genuinely funny guy, will be much missed. 
He will leave a legacy of laughs. 

RIP Rik, fly free and fly safe xxx

Really sad news. I was a big fan of the Young Ones, when I was a bit too young to be watching it really, he was just so funny! RIP Rik xx

Shocked beyond belief at another tragic loss to the world and so grateful for the comic legacy this immensely talented man has left us.    

Irrepressible, irresistible, irreplaceable Rik Mayall  - much loved by millions and always will be.  

Heartfelt condolences to his family and friends,

Lord Flashheart has left the building, so sad. I read that his wife thought it may have been a fit or something relating to his injuries from his accident years earlier. It was much much too soon.

Rik Mayall's funeral was held this afternoon in a country church with a spectacular view from the churchyard: ]http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2662486/Last-respects-comic-genius-Friends-family-Rik-Mayall-including-Ben-Elton-Dawn-French-Ruby-Wax-gather-Devon-church-Young-Ones-stars-funeral.html[/url]

You'll be sorely missed but don't rest in peace, Rik - death is far too short to waste it sleeping and you've got a lot of living to do 'up there'.   smilie
