“We’re so sorry to have to tell you that Archie Lyndhurst, who so brilliantly played Ollie in So Awkward on CBBC, has very sadly died after a short illness,” CBBC announced. “Archie will be hugely missed by all who worked with him, and by all the fans who laughed along with Ollie in the show.” (RELATED: WWE Star Road Warrior Animal Dies At 60)
