He died at Twycross Zoo in Warwickshire on Monday, following a short illness. Staff at the zoo say he "will never be forgotten".

Although gone, Louis will never be forgotten - he will always be a member of our Twycross Zoo chimp family." Louis's 42-year-old partner and fellow on-screen star Choppers remains at the zoo. "She is doing well and will be monitored closely over the next couple of weeks by the animal team," added Dr MacDonald. "She will be introduced to some of the other chimps in the near future..."
