Actor and star of It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, Windsor Davies, has died.
Davies, 88, who was best known as Battery Sergeant Major “Shut Up” Williams in the TV series, also enjoyed a number one hit in 1975 with co-star Don Estelle when they recorded a version of Whispering Grass in character, a novelty hit which sold more than one million copies.
Davies also starred alongside Donald Sinden as two rival antique dealers in the long-running ITV sitcom Never The Twain. He was also the voice of Sergeant Major Zero in the 1980s sci-fi series Terrahawks.
