It appears that the famous comedian has died at the age of 60.

R.I.P

I saw that, too, but not sure if it's a hoax. Can't find any reliable source other than loads of people on twitter saying it.

He looked and sounded terrible last time I seen him on the box

Did him and Griff own a production company once over and made a fortune when they sold it?

I doubt it he'd not been in the best of health for a while. The person who's tweeted seems to be someone some people have heard of too and there are people, people would think of before Mel Smith if they were gong to do a hoax.

Yes, it's just been put up. For about half an hour, there was literally no source whatsoever other than a lot of people on twitter repeating it.

Very sad. From an age where comedy didn't have to be coarse just for shock laughs

Yes I look so silly, how will I ever face my family and friends again?

At the time of posting nothing was confirmed or on any of the news channels.

That's a shock, wasn't expecting to hear this today, used to love Alas Smith and Jones.

RIP Mel. Thanks for the laughs.

Thoughts to his family and friends.

How can you tell you are ever facing them when your eyes are constantly rolling like that?
