Jeremy Lloyd was best known as co-creator and writer of ‘Allo ‘Allo and Are You Being Served which ran on British television for 10 years and 13 years respectively. In addition to being a writer he was also a poet and an actor appearing in both A Hard Days Night and Help! He also made regular appearances on Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In during the ’69-’70 Season. Lloyd was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2012 for services to British comedy. The success of Are You Being Served spawned two spin-offs and was based partly on his own experiences of working in a London department store. He’s been quoted as saying, “I was fired for selling soft drinks in a fitting room and smoking too much behind the counter.” Cue the cash register sound effect and sing it with me… “Ground floor perfumery, stationery and leather goods, wigs and haberdashery, kitchenware and food…going up”.
