Griff Rhys Jones, the beloved British actor and comedian, is celebrating his milestone 70th birthday today! The man who made us laugh our socks off in Alas Smith & Jones, Not the Nine O'Clock News and Three Men in a Boat is now officially into his eighth decade!
The multi-talented star has had a successful career spanning five decades. He has been on television since 1979 when he first appeared on BBC's "Not The Nine O'Clock News" alongside Rowan Atkinson, Mel Smith and Pamela Stephenson.
Griff is also a renowned writer, having written several autobiographies as well as books on subjects such as British history and houses. He has also written for many stage productions across the UK, including his adaptation of 'Three Men in a Boat'.
On this special day, we wish Griff Rhys Jones all the best for his 70th birthday! Hopefully he'll have time for a round or two of the 70th Birthday Game during his celebrations.
