Tim Brooke-Taylor receives OBE

Tim Brooke-Taylor has received an OBE for his services to entertainment, following in the footsteps of fellow Goodies Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden.

"We can now all three sit on our bike together with our OBEs," he said, referring to the three-seater bicycle they rode in the 70s comedy show.

Brooke-Taylor, a regular panellist on I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue on BBC Radio 4, has a career in entertainment spanning 47 years.

He remains best-known for The Goodies, an anarchic, visually-inventive comedy show which ran for more than a decade, but was also a regular on the TV series Marty and the animated children's series Bananaman, among others.

Speaking to reporters after receiving the honour from the Prince of Wales, he admitted "one had to bite one's tongue", having often poked fun at the ease with which honours were handed out in the 1970s.

Tim Brooke-Taylor became the third and final star of 1970s TV comedy series The Goodies to receive an OBE for decades in the entertainment industry.

He said it was ironic that he and fellow actors Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie used to poke fun at the Government’s readiness to hand out OBEs in the ‘70s.

“That was in the days when we had a Prime Minister that used to give them away to all his friends,” he said.

“But I have to admit one has to bite one’s tongue.”

“We can now all three sit on our bike together with our OBEs,” he added, referring to the three-seater bicycle they rode in the show.
