Actor John Cleese's frantic character BASIL FAWLTY is to be honoured with a life-size statue, which will be erected in Torquay, south west England. The British 1970s TV show FAWLTY TOWERS was based in the Hotel Gleneagles in the popular seaside resort, and council members have decided to pay tribute to the show which put their town on the map. The GBP20,000 ($37,000) figurine of Fawlty will be joined by statues of the rest of the fictional hotel's staff - including chambermaid POLLY and hapless waiter MANUEL.
