Cleese’s ex Connie wraps up for a stroll after Fawlty Towers snub


WHEN John Cleese announced he was bringing back Fawlty Towers, his co-writer and ex-wife, Connie Booth, was shocked that she had not been consulted.

‘I’d have appreciate­d learning about the project from John rather than reading about it in the papers,’ said Booth, 82, who played Basil Fawlty’s chambermai­d Polly Sherman in the classic comedy (left).

And the actress-turned-psychother­apist cut a forlorn figure (right) as she was seen out in public for the first time since her exhusband Cleese, 83, announced his plans last month. She wrapped up for an afternoon stroll in North London with her second husband, American theatre critic and writer John Lahr, 81.

Cleese is writing the new series with his daughter, Camilla, from his second marriage, to Barbara Trentham, the model and actress who died in 2013.
