His death was announced by several friends in a number of social media posts on Thursday.

Craig accused Bob of trying to attack Mary with a sword, to which Bob said: ‘We were rehearsing Pirates Of Penzance.’

Craig said: ‘I saw you from my window and you looked terrified.’

Mary replied: ‘Yeah, it’s called acting Craig. I suppose I should take your overreaction as a compliment.’
