Comedian Sir Ken Dodd dies at 90 - just days after discussing comeback

The mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, the Liverpool Council and famed author, actor and comedian, David Williams, also posted their condolences to Sir Ken Dodd's wife and family.

She added: "The most precious thing you can give someone is advice and time".

The comedian outsold monster hits such as Can't Buy Me Love and I Feel Fine by the Liverpudlian rockers, which were placed in fourth and fifth position in the chart.

Reminiscing about her 40-year relationship with the comedian, she said: "We first met when I was in the Ken Dodd Christmas Show in 1961 at the Manchester Opera House".

The Official Charts Company also revealed that the track is the 38th bestselling song of all time in the United Kingdom and, since its release, Tears has shifted more than 1.52 million copies, excluding streams.

Seattle, interestingly enough, wanted the first right of refusal on any offer, and so Sherman called Seahawks GM John Schneider. He arrived in San Francisco and had dinner with Kyle Shanahan and his wife, and defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.


"The Borough Hall is bigger but it is not a typical music hall venue and that is what Ken Dodd wanted". "It was only outsold by 2 tunes from The Beatles!" "That's my Ken Dodd story".

Presenters Ant and Dec wrote on Twitter: "So sad to hear of the passing of Ken Dodd".

Sandi Toksvig wrote: "Best dinner companion I ever sat next to".

"Thank you for all the laughs Sir Ken and tatty bye from your friends at Eastbourne Theatres".

Gavin recalls: "There was a charming anecdote which I can recall from a few years back where we received a complaint from a group of people who had come to see Mr Dodd as part of their holiday in Eastbourne - the next morning at breakfast in their hotel they were commenting how absurd it was that a show that started at 7.30pm and ended at 11pm didn't have an interval".

The Proteas resumed at 7-263 on day three, with de Villiers unbeaten on 74 and their lead just 20 runs. "In a way I understand it. Obviously KG has crossed the line a couple of times, but if I was a bowler I'm sure I would have had a couple of bans by now.


Comedian Russ Abbot described Sir Ken as "an icon, a one-off and a true professor of comedy".

Annie Wallace, who plays Sally in Hollyoaks, called Sir Ken a "true son of attractive Liverpool". One of the all time greats. A fine entertainer and true son of lovely Liverpool, never to be forgotten.

Just two days before his death, Dodd married his partner of 40 years, Anne Jones - a move that some say was his final riposte to the taxman, since it means she won't have to pay inheritance tax.

"He lived to flawless his art and entertain his live and adoring audiences". He was a wonderful ambassador for the city, a tireless fundraiser for charities, and quite simply one of the nation's greatest comics.

Flags on official buildings flew at half-mast in Dodd's home city on Monday.

Especially in a large group conversation, you may not have time to delete a post before it is seen by one or more people. Vanishing conversations are all the rage these days, and it's one feature that WhatsApp notably lacks.
