British comedy troupe Monty Python will split for good after their money-spinning reunion shows this summer (14), according to Michael Palin.

The veteran comedians came back together last year (13) to announce plans for a series of gigs in London in July (14), and troupe member Palin is adamant the group has no plans to work together ever again after the residency at the O2 Arena wraps.

He says, "It is entirely about money. I have only one wife, but John Cleese has had a few and Terry Jones has got a mortgage problem. I haven't got a huge amount (of money) stashed away. After the final concert we will all embrace and go our separate ways."
