Tributes are being paid to comedian, Ken Dodd, who has died at the age of 90.

He passed away in Liverpool in the same house where he was born – a few days after getting married to his partner of 40 years.

Sir Ken was known for his ‘madcap’ sense of humour.

On Facebook, Shanklin Theatre posted:

“We are heartbroken to hear of the passing of Ken Dodd today. Ken graced our stage back in 2014 and performed (until midnight) to a full theatre, our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time. ‘Ken Dodd, the master of making people happy’.”
