During that time, Rosemarie has collected so much memorabilia and says: "My bedroom wall is absolutely covered with pictures of Ken". I'm privileged to have been there for him and he for me.

Irish comedian Dara O Briain, known for hosting panel shows such as Mock the Week, remembered seeing him at one of his "incredible 5 hour shows". "I'm going to teach my legs how to work again, they've forgotten you know, and once I've recovered myself I'll get back to doing the job, which is the only job I've ever had", he said upon leaving hospital back in February.

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. But what would I do if I retired? Over the years he has appeared at its main theatres and many social clubs that are no longer running.

Dodd was famous for his very long stand-up shows - with which he was touring until a year ago - along with his Diddy Men and the tickling stick.

His wife was at his bedside.

The Liverpool legend had recently been released from hospital after six weeks of treatment for a chest infection.

In passing away two days after marrying his long-term partner Anne Jones, the lights have gone out on a born entertainer like no other.

Holmes said Dodd "was one of the last music hall greats". There is no one else that comes close. He's never lived anywhere else.

Tributes for Sir Ken flooded in this morning, with Liverpool comedian John Bishop writing on Instagram: "True comedy legend".

Even when he was taken to hospital for a "minor operation" on New Year's Eve in 2007, it came just hours after completing a four-hour sell-out gig at Liverpoool's Philharmonic Hall.

Holmes said: "He's not been well this year".
