Comedian Ken Dodd dies aged 90

LEGENDARY British comedian Ken Dodd has died aged 90.

The Liverpool born comedian passed away at his childhood home yesterday in the suburb of Knotty Ash, just two days after getting married to Anne Jones, his partner of 40 years.

His wife was at his bedside as he passed away.

The much-loved entertainer was famous for his stand-up shows, his tickling sticks and Diddy Men.

The Liverpool comedian left hospital on February 27 after a six-week stay for a chest infection.

He performed his very last show just a couple of months ago, at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on December 28.

Tributes have been pouring in on social media for the comedian who once entered the Guinness Book of Records for the longest joke-telling session ever – 1,500 jokes in three-and-a-half hours.
