Comedian and actor Roy Hudd has died at the age of 83.
Hudd died on March 15 after a short illness, his agency confirmed.
A statement said: “We are sad to announce the passing of the much-loved and amazingly talented Roy Hudd OBE.
“After a short illness, Roy passed away peacefully on the afternoon of Sunday March 15, with his wife Debbie at his side.
“The family would ask you to respect their privacy at this very sad time.”
Hudd made his professional debut at the Streatham Hill Theatre in London and later went on to have a long career on radio and television.
His stage appearances included starring in Oliver! in the West End in 1977 and a musical version of Hard Times at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, London in 2000.
His final theatre appearance came last year in a production of Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance alongside Liza Goddard.
