Comedian and actor Eric Sykes has died at the age of 89, his manager has said.
Sykes was best-known for writing and performing in a series of TV sitcoms from the 1950s, including Sykes And A... alongside co-star Hattie Jacques.
He also starred in films including Monte Carlo or Bust, Absolute Beginners, Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines and The Others.
Norma Farnes said: "Eric Sykes, star of TV, stage and films, died peacefully this morning after a short illness."
She added: "His family were with him."
Born in Oldham, Sykes started his career writing radio material for comedians including Frankie Howerd after World War II.
Sykes himself soon stepped in front of the microphone and was among the performers on such radio favourites as Educating Archie and The Goon Show.
He continued to write scripts for others, including Howerd and Tony Hancock, as they moved onto TV.
He was then given his own shows, including Dress Rehearsal in 1956, Sykes And A... in 1960 and a follow-up, simply titled Sykes, in 1972.
