JOHN

The Mail on Sunday - - Talk Of The Town -

Cleese went into full Basil Fawlty mode last week when he launched a tirade about chil­dren. ‘They are just aw­ful,’ he said. ‘Young peo­ple go and have kids and then spend the next 30 years look­ing af­ter the lit­tle bug­gers, and for what? They’re a pain in the a***, cost a for­tune, you’ve no con­trol, and they’re never grate­ful.’

The Monty Python star is dad to Cyn­thia, 47, and Camilla, 34. Par­ents aren’t sup­posed to have a favourite but John, 79, made it clear that comic Camilla is the fron­trun­ner. ‘I have two. One’s OK, but the other comes on stage with me and is ab­so­lutely marvel­lous.’
