Ronnie Corbett - Ronnie Corbett Furious Over Retirement Rumours

Veteran British funnyman Ronnie Corbett is still angry over false reports suggesting he had retired from showbiz.

The 83-year-old comedian has been entertaining audiences for more than 60 years but was at the centre of 'quit' rumours last month (Mar14) following a report in a British tabloid.

Editors alleged Corbett's wife Anne had stated the funnyman had retired from Tv work because of several health issues, but within hours she had spoken out to insist Corbett had a number of contracts still ongoing and his career was "not over".

Now the former Two Ronnies star has revealed bosses of the publication gave him crates of booze to make up for the blunder and also made donations to several nursing homes, but he is still furious about the story.

Corbett tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "It was absolute nonsense. It was very annoying. I got a major apology but not matching the size of the error. It was irresponsible. They sent me some booze and plenty of money which I'm dividing among a number of care homes."
