Comedy Legend Sir Ken Dodd Has Died Aged 90

RIP one the true greats.

Comedy legend, Sir Ken Dodd, the man behind the Diddy Men, has died aged 90.

The Liverpudlian had recently been ill in hospital for six weeks with a bad chest infection but had just been released and on Friday, he finally married his partner, Anne Jones, after 40 years together.

They were married at their house in Liverpool which was the same house that Dodd grew up in.

Robert Holmes, Dodd’s publicist said “To my mind, he was one of the last music hall greats.”

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said a book of condolence would open later, tweeting: “We are comforted by the joy and happiness he brought the world.”
