We were really sad to hear of the news of reg varney, he was a true star, and a brilliant actor, i remember watching on the buses when i was little and even went to the cinema to see one or two of them, they dont make programmes like that now more's the pity. in fact i am watching one of the films as i write this tribute, there are 3 on today back to back and i am enjoying them every bit as much as i did the first time i saw them. anyway we send all our sympathy and best wishes to the family of reg at this very sad time, i am sure he is smiling that cheeky smile up above us all, sandra and family.x x
Thanks for all the laughs you've given me, my favourite is Holiday on the Buses, what a classic, you will be sadly missed, Debbie xx.

I was lucky enough to grow up watching the original series of On the Buses and remember reading the comic strip in the look - in magazine.
On the Buses was a great example from the golden age of sit coms, great show down to Reg and the rest of the cast.
Mate your the Tops on comady the rag trade on the buses to name a couple you brought joy to us all in the 60's 70's and 80's
God Bless You Mate and give my regards to the rest of the cast up there mate

I live in North Wales close to where Holiday on the Buses was filmed. Every time we drive over the bridge where Arthur & Olive lost their cases, I still think of the film and chuckle! Our friends' dad is also the general manager of Pontins in Prestatyn where it was filmed. A great film that brings back happy memories......... Sorry you're gone now Reg. (I only heard last night in a tribute show to you). Good luck with the 'clippies' up there - Bob Grant has a headstart on you but I'm sure that there will be one for you too!! Gone but not forgotten.
