Never Mind the Buzzcocks writer Jim Pullin ‘killed himself following a row with his wife’

Bafta award winning comedy writer Jim Pullin killed himself after row with his wife, an inquest in Oxford heard today.

The writer – who famously penned TV shows including Never Mind the Buzzcocks , 8 out of 10 Cats and Have I got News for You – was just 57 at the time of his death in July of this year.

Mr Pullin, whose first name was really Julian, parked at a fishing lake and lit two barbecues in the back of his car and gassed himself.

Jim was found dead by police at the Heyford Lakes complex in Oxfordshire, a coroner heard.

A foundation page has been set up in his name to support research into mental illness. The page states: “Jim was a hugely talented producer and writer as well as being a fantastic friend, and collaborator.
