Very sad news, thanks for uploading it here Fergie, weirdly I can find no mention of it on the BBC site as yet.

A real shame. I saw it on twitter a short while ago.

Am I right in thinking Allan is the first of the creative team to leave us? If so I think it would be nice to try and honour him in some way. On a car forum I frequent we named one of the sub-forums after the late Dr Alex Moulton. Perhaps we could rename General Chat to something like the 'The Allan McKeown Symposium'

I am going to do something on the homepage as a small remembrance.
I don't want to get all daft, I mean none of us knew him, but because he was such a huge part of the show (Series 1 & 2) its only right we show our support of all his hard work.

Rest in piece to Allan, he started off as a hairdresser to the stars before
Setting up witzend productions.
Married Tracey Ullman and made her a star in the states.
I hope him and Ian Le Frenais sorted out their differences before he passed away.
