Jeremy Lloyd (born Danbury, Essex, England, 31 July 1932) is an English actor and scriptwriter, best known as the co-author of several successful British sitcoms.

The gangly Lloyd made his film debut in 1960, and appeared in numerous film and television comedies during the 1960s and 1970s, notably "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" as a regular performer in 1969-70. His first major success as a comedy writer was with "Are You Being Served?" in 1972, on which he worked with David Croft. They subsequently produced "'Allo 'Allo!", which was equally popular in the UK, and "Are You being Served?" spinoff "Grace & Favour" in 1992. Jeremy also wrote the poem/lyrics for the popular "Captain Beaky" album and books in 1980.

He has been the subject of a persistent urban legend which claims that he was invited to a dinner party at the home of Sharon Tate on the night that she was murdered by followers of Charles Manson. There seems to be no truth in this myth, as Lloyd was performing at a live show in New York during the week of Tate's death, and there is no evidence to suggest that he had ever met Tate or her husband, Roman Polanski while she was still living.

Lloyd's first marriage (1955) to the model Dawn Bailey lasted seven years. After the marriage was dissolved, Lloyd was briefly married to the actress Joanna Lumley.


Lloyd appeared in "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!", two films starring The Beatles, and also had a brief role in "The Magic Christian", which starred Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr (drummer for the Beatles). Starr appeared in an episode of "Laugh-In", recalling the movies he and Lloyd were in together, while Lloyd looked at him as a stranger, saying "Sorry, you can't expect me to remember "everybody"."
