Clive Dunn's former 'Dad's Army' co-stars have paid tribute to his sense of humour and his pleasant nature

Tributes have been paid to Clive Dunn, who died at the age of 92 on Tuesday (06.11.12).

Frank Williams, who played the vicar on TV series 'Dad's Army' - for which Clive was best known - revealed he always had "fun" with him on set and claimed he was a "wonderful" man.

He said: "Of course he was much younger than the parts he played.

"It's very difficult to think of him as an old man really.

"But he was a wonderful person to work with - great sense of humour, always fun, a great joy really."

Fellow co-star star Ian Lavender, who played Private Pike, said he always enjoyed working with him too.

He said: "Working with him was always fun, not necessarily hysterical, but just fun.

"The word Clive Dunn used an awful lot was nice, 'I had a very nice time, thanks'."

Clive - who was best known for his catchphrase "don't panic" on the TV series which ran from 1968 to 1977 - passed away in Portugal after a short illness.

He last appeared on TV in 1984 in TV movie 'Much Ado About Nothing'.

Dunn is survived by his wife Priscilla Morgan and two daughters, Jessica and Polly.
