Entertainer Ronnie Corbett, who had a home in Broadstairs, has died today.
The 85-year-old TV star died this morning, surrounded by his family.
Mr Corbett had a holiday home in York Street, Broadstairs, just along from H. E. Harrington’s general ironmongers, for many years.
His comedy partner, Ronnie Barker, is said to have been inspired to write their Four Candles sketch on a visit to the town, when the shop gave him an idea which he then developed into the Two Ronnies’ most famous performance.
Corbett was one of the country’s best-loved comedians and with Mr Barker, their double act was popular throughout the 1970s and 80s.
