SIR KEN DODD DIES AT 90: COMEDY WORLD PAYS TRIBUTE TO ‘ONE OF ALL-TIME GREATS’

Sir Ken Dodd, the comedy legend and one of the most popular entertainers of his time, has died aged 90 just two days after getting married.

The star – famous for his epic stand-up shows, his tickling sticks and Diddy Men – died on Sunday in the house in which he was born.

His wife, whom he married at at home in the Liverpool suburb of Knotty Ash  just two days earlier, was at his bedside.

The Liverpool comedian left hospital on February 27 at the end of a six-week stay for a chest infection.

He wed Anne Jones, his partner of 40 years, on Friday and an announcement was due to go out later this week about the marriage.
