Sir Clement Freud has died aged 84. RIP

Sad news this morning. Sir Clement Freud has died.

Broadcaster and former Liberal MP Sir Clement Freud has died aged 84. A statement from his family said Sir Clement had died on Wednesday evening at his London home.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, the actress Jill Freud, five children and 17 grandchildren. His funeral will be held next week. A grandson of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, Sir Clement had a varied career as a cookery expert, press columnist and radio game show contestant.

Such a sharp, witty man...a shame he'll never brighten our evenings on Just a Minute again.
