Former Blackadder cast member Stephen Fry has tweeted a tribute to actress Patsy Byrne from Ashford, who played Nursie in the long-running series, calling her an "adorable woman". The actor John Challis, who played Boycie in Only Fools and Horses, has also paid his respects.
Oh lord no! I’ve just heard that Patsy Byrne, darling Nursie has died. Hope St Bernard has welcomed her to eternal rest. Adorable woman.
