LATEST: Filming of the final episode of hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond was put on hold Friday (21JAN05), after Patricia Heaton was struck down with a bout of laryngitis.

The cast was prepared for an emotional filming of the last scenes - set to air in America on 16 May (05) after a nine-year run - but postponed proceedings due to Heaton's illness.

Despite the delay, a wrap party still went ahead yesterday (23JAN05) in Los Angeles.
