"Her fun and laughter, extraordinary learning and intelligence, will be missed always, by so many of us," Wright's agent, Heather Holden-Brown, tells BBC News in a statement. "Loved dearly by her friends and many fans all over the world, Clarissa was utterly non-PC and fought for what she believed in, always, with no thought to her own personal cost."

Wright, who passed away in Edinburgh's Royal Infirmary at the age of 66, traveled through the U.K. with Paterson on a motorcycle and sidecar in search of great food on "Two Fat Ladies" from 1996 until Paterson's death in 1999.

Following Paterson's passing, Wright continued to appear on TV, starring in "Clarissa and the Countryman" until 2003. In that same year, she also popped up on an episode of "Absolutely Fabulous."
