British actor ANDREW SACHS is to lift the lid on life at FAWLTY TOWERS in a new autobiography.

The 82 year old, who played hapless Spanish waiter Manuel in John Cleese's popular 1970s sitcom, has confirmed he is writing a book detailing his long-running acting career.

Sachs has named the tome I Know Nothing after his character's famous catchphrase and it will hit stores by the end of the year (13).
