John Fortune, the British comedian and satirist who found fame through his TV collaborations with John Bird and Rory Bremner, has died aged 74.

His agent Vivienne Clore said he died peacefully on Tuesday with his wife Emma and dog Grizelle at his bedside.

Born in 1939, he was educated in Bristol before going on to Cambridge where he met fellow satirist Bird.

A founding member of Peter Cook's Establishment Club, he shared a Bafta with Bird in 1997.
