My first taste of Bob Monkhouse was at the Lone Star Restaurant when it debuted in 1997, he was quite hilarious but also ill I did not know – he passed on not long after…

Now it seems his wife of 35 years has decided to join him –

Jackie Monkhouse, 71, was found by her maid at her home in Barbados.

Monkhouse’s agent of 38 years, Peter Prichard, said: “It’s a case of somebody dying in their sleep. It’s a shock for all her friends. There was no reason to believe she was ill.”

She divided her time between the Monkhouses’ property in the Sugar Hill area of the island and their home near Dunstable, Bedfordshire.

She started in life as his secretary and became extremely supportive of him even before she knew the late comic would leave us five years ago –

Friends said she never fully recovered from Monkhouse’s death from prostate cancer in 2003.

She was his secretary and they married in 1973 after he split from first wife Elizabeth.

Monkhouse died aged 75 after being one of Britain’s top comedians for more than four decades.
