British comedian Terry Jones, well-known for his role in Monty Python, has died, aged 77.

Jones had suffered a long battle with dementia, which become so severe nearly a year ago that it left him without speech, according to former co-star Terry Gilliam.

Gilliam is one of the four surviving members which includes Michael Palin, Eric Idle and John Cleese.

His death comes after Neil Innes, star of The Rutles and the man known as the “seventh Monty Python”, passed away in late December.

Innes was said to be responsible for the whistling on the iconic “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”, and died just weeks after celebrating his 75th birthday.
