Last PG Tips chimp Choppers dies aged 48 after developing heart and liver failure
The last surviving chimpanzee from the famous PG Tips adverts has died aged 48.
Choppers, the final original 'tea chimp', was put to sleep at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire on Wednesday, the tourist attraction said.
She had been displaying signs of heart and liver failure.
The 'much-loved' chimpanzee's death came two years after she lost her partner, and fellow PG Tips star, Louis.
Popular with zoo visitors, Choppers was known for her starring role as Ada in the tea adverts, which ran from the 1960s through until 1980.read more
