Comedians Sarah Millican, Stephen Mangan, and TV personality Gok Wan have taken to Twitter to pay tribute to Sue Townsend, who is reported to have died yesterday aged 68.
Such sad news about Sue Townsend. Just about to start reading 'The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year'. Will do so now with a heavier heart.
Deeply saddened to hear the hugely talented Sue Townsend has died. My thoughts are with her family. Adrian Mole was a big part of my youth x
Greatly upset to hear that Sue Townsend has died. One of the warmest, funniest and wisest people I ever met.
