Sad news. I remember Des and Mel. R.I.P.
The star, whose 45-year career included hit singles and TV chat shows, died "peacefully" in his sleep.
Entertainer Des O'Connor has died at the age of 88, his agent has confirmed.
The comedian, singer and TV host died on Saturday following a fall at his home in Buckinghamshire just over a week ago.
He was known hosting his own chat show, as well as Take Your Pick and Countdown - and for his friendship with Morecambe and Wise.
In a statement his agent said he was "well loved by absolutely everybody" and "loved life".
