Didn't he have an accident a few years ago? I wonder if he fully got over it.

 

It was 1998, so not recently but who knows? Guess we'll find out in due course.

I can't believe it, my kids were bought up on the parenting skills I learnt from Rich and Eddie. I know they were working on another Y Fronts tour which sadly won't happen now.

 

A true legend in our house a sad lose "Better put a doily on the TV the queens on"

 

RIP Rik.

The Bottom live shows are absolute gold. They're all on Youtube so if anyone hasn't watched them, I thoroughly recommend it. He and Ade managed to make childish, puerile humour appeal to so many people! I'm going to watch a few episodes of Bottom before I go to bed and try not to wake anyone up with laughter. Comedy has lost a true gem today.

It's very rare that the death of a celeb has an impact on me, but Rik's passing has left me absolutely gutted. He was a big part of my late teen and twenties years. My comedy hero, and am glad I saw him in person at the Liverpool Empire in 2001 for Bottom Live.

I hope he's up there beating the crap out of the gasman.

RIP Rik
