Comedian Jimmy Tarbuck has been fined after admitting driving offences near his southwest London home.

The 83-year-old pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention, failing to stop and give his name and address after an accident, and failing to report an accident.

The offences occurred on 15 May – just days after his sister’s funeral – when he damaged vehicles, including a Vauxhall Corsa, while driving in Coombe Gardens, Kingston upon Thames.

Tarbuck was fined £716 and given five penalty points. He was also ordered to pay £110 in costs and a £286 victim surcharge.

The comedian, known as Tarby, pleaded guilty to the offences by post and didn’t attend court, but sent a letter apologising for his actions.

Born in Liverpool, Tarbuck rose to fame in the 1960s and was known for hosting variety shows including Sunday Night At The London Palladium and Live From Her Majesty’s.

He’s rarely on television nowadays, but appeared on Good Morning Britain in August to pay tribute to Sir Michael Parkinson.

He also discussed his prostate cancer diagnosis on the same show in 2020.
