Entertainer Ronnie Corbett, best known for BBC comedy sketch show The Two Ronnies, has died aged 85.

His publicist said: "Ronnie Corbett CBE, one of the nation's best-loved entertainers, passed away this morning, surrounded by his loving family.

"They have asked that their privacy is respected at this very sad time."

Corbett was one of the UK's best-loved comedians and along with Ronnie Barker, their double act was one of the most successful of the 1970s and '80s.

The entertainer had been suffering from ill-health for some time and had been in hospital in 2014 with gall bladder problems.

Sod this! Don't we have any asshats we can throw on the fire please?
I'm getting really bored of loosing good people.
I want at least one proper wanker to peg it so I can have a nice quite warming schadenfreude moment.

Is that too much to ask for?

If you're willing to cough up plane fare and enough cash to buy a gun, I'm willing to spend the rest of my natural life in prison for assassinating Trump.

Given the mans capacity to polarise public opinion, thou may have to take a ticket and wait in line sir.

I watched that show growing up late Saturday nights along with Dave Allen at Large and D.W.
I miss those days and he will be missed, too!
