Legendary Entertainer Des O’Connor has died aged at the age of 88, his agent has confirmed.
Des O’Connor’s agent said in a statement: “It is with great sorrow that I confirm that Des O’Connor passed away yesterday (Saturday 14 November). “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. Des, who was 88, was so well-loved by absolutely everyone. He was a joy to work with – he was talented, fun, positive, enthusiastic, kind and a total professional. He loved life, and considered enthusiasm almost as important as oxygen. He adored his family – they were everything to him.”
