Comedian Sir Ken Dodd has died

Sir Ken Dodd has died at the age of 90, his publicist has said.

The comedian, famous for his long stand-up shows as well as his Diddy Men and tickling stick, died just days after leaving hospital.

He married Anne Jones, his partner of 40 years, on Friday at their house, which was also the one he was born in.

His publicist Robert Holmes told the Press Association: “They got the registrar and were married in the house. He died two days later on Mother’s Day. Anne is obviously very upset.

“To my mind, he was one of the last music hall greats.”
