Although he's nearly four decades in the comedy game and was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's, Billy Connolly isn't going anywhere.

Stories about Connolly's life "slipping away" following the broadcast of the BBC documentary 'Billy Connolly: Made In Scotland' appear to be unfounded as the comedian appeared in a Twitter video this afternoon to laugh off the rumours of his impending demise.

Take a look.

The video, posted by Connolly's wife, sees the comedian plucking a banjo and admitting that he probably "should have phrased it better", in reference to his comments about his age.

Previously, Connolly had said that "(my) life, it’s slipping away and I can feel it and I should. I’m 75, I’m near the end. I’m a damn sight nearer the end than I am the beginning. But it doesn’t frighten me, it’s an adventure and it is quite interesting to see myself slipping away."

Connolly's comments came on foot of his announcement of his retirement from live performance just before Christmas. Going by the video, however, he looks like he's just enjoying life in his own way.
