“It is with great sadness we can confirm that our client, the actor Nicholas Smith, passed away yesterday,” his agents at Michelle Braidman Associates said.
“He was a lovely man and a terrific actor. He will be much missed by all who knew him.
“Our thoughts are with his family.”
Smith, who died in hospital on Sunday, had been in hospital for seven weeks following a fall at home.
He had been the last surviving member of the original cast, in which he played Cuthbert “Jug Ears” Rumbold, the manager of the mens and ladieswear sections in Grace Bros department store.
