The Blackadder and Mr Bean actor was rumoured to have passed away after the topic 'RIP Rowan Atkinson' started trending on Twitter today (February 26).
However, the 57-year-old is confirmed to be alive and well.
Atkinson's death hoax comes little over a week after certain Twitter users spread the rumour that Madonna had died.
That prank is believed to have been started to coincide with the funeral of Whitney Houston, which took place in New Jersey on February 18.
Eddie Murphy became the victim of a death hoax earlier this month, while Kevin Bacon, Charlie Sheen, Jersey Shore star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Jon Bon Jovi were all targeted last year.
