Celebrated comedian and actor Ken Dodd has passed away at the age of 90 just two days after marrying his partner of 40 years, his publicist has said.
His publicist Robert Holmes said Sir Ken married Anne Jones, 76, on March 9 at their house, where he has lived for his entire life and died two days later on Mother’s Day (On March 11), reports thesun.co.uk.
The comedian, famous for his stand-up shows, as well as his Diddy Men and tickling stick, died at the home where he was born in the Liverpool suburb of Knotty Ash.
Dodd was being treated at the Liverpool Heart and Chest hospital for six weeks with a chest infection before being discharged a fortnight ago.
Earlier, media reported that the iconic stand-up was cancelling his upcoming shows due to health woes.
Paying tribute, Holmes said: “To my mind, he was one of the last music hall greats.”
