The Voice reports that comedian/actress Collette Johnson has died of cancer of the spine, after being diagnosed with the illness earlier this year. She was 52 years old.
Collette was one of the original performers on the hit 1990s BBC comedy sketch show ‘The Real McCoy’ and starred in many sketches alongside fellow comedian Llewella Gideon.
Llewella told The Voice,
“I last saw Collette a couple of years ago,” Gideon said of her former colleague, who had also suffered from multiple sclerosis. “She wasn’t well but we had a lovely chat; a really nice catch-up.
“She was one of a kind. Sharp-tongued, sharp-witted – she didn’t suffer fools gladly!”
