Must See 19/09/2019

Sir Michael Palin has revealed to a British newspaper the extent of his former co-star and close friend of almost 50 years Terry Jones' dementia.

He said that he believes Jones no longer knows who he is.

"The last time I saw him I don’t think he recognised me." Michael told the Daily Express.

“We knew each other well. It feels like a part of yourself isn’t there anymore.”

Terry Jones was diagnosed with dementia in 2015 and is now unable to communicate.

Michael Palin says he still continues to visit Terry and still manages to find moments of joy when they are together.

"At a certain moment Terry began to really laugh, the way he used to laugh,” said Sir Michael."

"That was a great moment."
