'Spamalot' royalties decision due

West End musical 'Spamalot' has been the source of a bitter court dispute between 3 Monty Python stars and a film producer.

Today, Eric Idle, Michael Palin and Terry Jones will learn if their attempt to deny producer Mark Forstater royalties from the Monty Python spin off show has been successful.

Mark Forstater, who produced the 1975 film 'Monty Python And The Holy Grail', claims he is owed a greater share of profits from the popular London show, but the Python stars say he was not as involved in the writing process as he claims.

The case began in November and Judge Mr Justice Norris is scheduled to deliver his decision today.
