Monty Python’s Terry Jones diagnosed with dementia


Terry Jones, one of the stars from the legendary comedy group Monty Python, has sadly been diagnosed with dementia.

The 74-year-old penned some of the group’s best known sketches and movies, such Life Of Brian and Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life. Outside Monty Python, Jones has been involved in a multitude of other projects. He wrote the script for Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, for instance.

It is understood that Jones may no longer be able to participate in interviews or public appearances, as the disease is impairing his ability to communicate properly.

Jones was due to receive a special BAFTA award for his oustanding contribution to film and television.
