Comedian, singer and variety performer Max Bygraves has died aged 89.
The veteran entertainer died peacefully in his sleep at home in Hope Island, Queensland, Australia, yesterday.
Bygraves, whose wife Blossom died in May last year after battling a long illness, is survived by one son and two daughters.
One of them, Christine Green, was with him when he died, Mr Mans said.
He appeared in films, stage shows and hosted gameshow Family Fortunes during a long-running career.
Comedian Jimmy Tarbuck, a close friend of Bygraves, said: "He was one of the greats of British entertainment. "I have nothing but lovely memories of him. He was a big, big influence on me."
