Corbett, Jason, Suchet Pay Tribute To Barker

The comedy veteran passed away at his English home after a long period of heart problems. He was 76.

Barker's OPEN ALL HOURS co-star SIR DAVID JASON, called the comedian "a dear friend and someone for whom I had the greatest respect".

He added, "Working with Ronnie was always a joy and were without doubt some of the best years of my career."

Meanwhile, POIROT star DAVID SUCHET, who once bought a house from Barker, enthused, "He has left behind a library of work which will entertain this nation for many years to come."
