Des O'Connor dies aged 88
« on: November 15, 2020, 10:02 »
Des O'Connor has died at the age of 88 following a fall at his home, his agent has confirmed.

The TV all-rounder had achieved a rare feat in the often fickle world of entertainment, heading up his own primetime TV chat shows for over 45 years.

Pat Lake-Smith said in a statement: "It is with great sorrow that I confirm that Des O'Connor passed away yesterday.

"He had been admitted to hospital just over a week ago, following a fall at his home in Buckinghamshire. He was recovering well and had been in great spirits, visited by his family - in accordance with hospital lockdown regulations - and looking forward to going home. Unfortunately yesterday evening his condition suddenly deteriorated and he drifted peacefully away in his sleep.
