Monty Python - Monty Python Clothes Eaten By Moths

Comedy troupe Monty Python had to replace all their stage clothes and hats for their upcoming reunion shows because the original garments were ruined by moths.

The veteran sketch show team - John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin - announced in November (13) they will be performing 10 shows at London's O2 Arena in July (14) to bring the curtain down on their career.

They have since revealed no original material will be performed at the concerts and fans will instead be treated to the team's classic and best-loved sketches, but the five funnymen will be dressed in new clothes because their original props were wrecked in storage.

Palin tells British magazine Event, "Most of the overalls and the hats have been eaten by moths so they don't actually exist. I do have my old spangled jacket from the Blackmail sketch, but sadly it doesn't fit any more."
