SOUTH Shields-born comic and actor Eric Idle recently announced a reunion alongside his fellow Monty Python stars.

Idle will reunite on stage with Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam and John Cleese at London’s O2 Arena.

It is more than 30 years since the troupe last performed together.

The 70-year-old told the Gazette: “I shall try and stop drinking. It’s a big year. I went five years without for Spamalot.”
