And it's Goodnight from Him - Ronnie Corbett RIP

Ronnie Corbett, one of the funniest men in Britain either on his own or with his long-term collaborator Ronnie Barker, has died at the age of 85.

His publicist said: "Ronnie Corbett CBE, one of the nation's best-loved entertainers, passed away this morning, surrounded by his loving family.

"They have asked that their privacy is respected at this very sad time."

This is one of the many particularly memorable examples of his comic genius ...

A few months ago after several of the most popular people in the world had already died this year, someone suggested "It's as if the Grim Reaper had delegated this year's deaths to an intern and he's decided to work through a list of the most popular people that everybody likes"

I feel all the more like that tonight.

Farewell to a tiny giant, who will be missed.

Rest in Peace.
