I'm watching 'This Morning' and I've just found out that Bobby Ball has died suddenly, aged 76, of the Coronavirus. His comedy partner, Tommy Cannon, is speaking about him on the programme and you can tell he's pulling himself together, having sadness all over his face from sobbing.

Tommy admits part of him has died with Bobby. Their relationship had spanned some 57/58 years.

All the sympathy in the World to Tommy, to Bobby's family (he leaves behind three children: Darren, Joanne and Robert) and to everyone who knew and loved the comedian. 💐

RIP Bobby Ball 🕯️ XXX

I'd guess cannon must have been around 5ft 8? Or not far off would that be accurate rob?
Editor Rob
