Late British comedian Spike Milligan, the creator of landmark radio series The Goon Show, has finally been given his choice of inscription on his gravestone -
"I told you I was ill".
Two years after Milligans's death at the age of 83, the epitaph has been added to a Celtic cross above his grave at St Thomas's Church in Winchelsea, southeast England, it was announced on Monday.

The headstone carries the sentence in Gaelic - Milligan's family originated in Ireland - which the comedian had always joked was his chosen final message to the world.
