Although he had vowed to never for the BBC to work, will John Cleese (78) now still back on the old nest. The actor, who shone in the BBC-gems of Monty Python and Fawlty Towers, are going to play in the new sitcom Hold the Sunset. This is reported Daily Star.

Cleese said in an interview in 2015, ” never, never, more for the BBC to want to work’. He called the English channel a clichéd company. The Brit wanted at all, not more for tv work. Also he considered that the people who at the BBC worked absolutely have no idea what they are doing’.

Nothing human is Cleese apparently strange, because three years later he of his decision back. After reading the script of Hold the Sun he said: “This is the best that I have for the past hundred years have read it, I love it!”


The decision of the actor is not everybody’s good earth. Fans call him a hypocrite, because according to them ’just needs money’ and therefore his principles aside.

The BBC is, in any case, glad to Cleese back on board to have: “It’s great to have John back in the sitcom department of the BBC. His last show did it quite nice.” This was a heavy hint referred to the successful series Fawlty Towers, which is worldwide by millions of people viewed. The show ran from 1975 to 1979, but was repeated multiple times.
