Tributes continue to pour in for the late actor, who portrayed Mr Morris in the Channel 4 comedy show.

Landis' agent Sharry Clark Artists announced the news on Facebook, writing: "Sad news. Our lovely client Harry Landis has passed to spirit."

The firm added: "Harry had an amazing career and gained a new following in later life as Mr Morris in Friday Night Dinner.

"It was a privilege to have worked with him as a client. Harry you will be sadly missed. RIP."

Plenty of his peers have shared their tributes, with their thoughtful words demonstrating how much of a great actor he was to work with.

Friday Night Dinner writer Robert Popper said on Twitter: "It is with great sadness that Harry Landis - aka Mr Morris in Friday Night Dinner - has passed away.

"He was a brilliantly funny, wonderful man. Our greatest guest star."

A fellow star of the sitcom Tracy-Ann Oberman added: "Bloody loved #HarryLandis. I am so sorry to hear of his passing."

Casualty actress Catherine Shipton tweeted: "So sad to hear this news. Knew #harrylandis over many years, a unique spirit.

"He was a character in the wedding episode of #chuffy by @thepoves on @BBCCasualty. Irascible to the end. RIP."

Fans have been sharing their condolences too, with one writing: "RIP to actor Harry Landis aka Mr Morris from Friday Night Dinner."

Another said: "Remembering Harry Landis today who sadly passed away at the age of 91 [sic]. Mr Morris was a bleeding lunatic."

"RIP the great Harry Landis. A comic genius," added third, with a fourth commenting, "RIP Harry Landis. If you haven’t watched Friday Night Dinner, you should do so pronto."

Yep, fans of the show will know it's hard to forget Mr Morris, the angry pensioner dating the boys' grandma Eleanor.

Friday Night Dinner centres on an eccentric family and, you guessed it, their Friday night dinners together.

Tamsin Greig, Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal play the mum and sons respectively, while the dad was portrayed by Paul Ritter, who also sadly died last year.

Landis took on a wide variety of roles over the years, including barbershop owner and Holocaust survivor Felix Kawalski in Eastenders.

His acting career dates all the way back to 1955 when he starred in a TV adaptation of The Prince and the Pauper.

Landis was born on 25 November, 1931 in Stepney, London.
