Scottish TV star Kenny Ireland, whose roles have included playing the ageing swinger Donald Stewart in ITV comedy series Benidorm, has died at the age of 68.
His agent said he had died in the early hours of this morning, adding: "He had been ill with cancer for some time."
Ireland was a familiar face in Victoria Wood's series As Seen On TV, featuring in the cast of the regular Acorn Antiques segment.
