Beloved British actor Paul Shane has died, aged 72.
The Hi-de-Hi! star passed away at a hospice in Rotherham, England on Thursday (16May13) after a short illness.
A former miner, Shane became a club singer and comic after suffering an accident at a colliery in the late 1960s.
His variety act career snowballed and led to appearances on Tv in Britain. As Frank Roper on Coronation Street, he impressed comedy writer Jimmy Perry, who offered him the part of Ted Bovis in his new holiday-camp sitcom Hi-de-Hi!.
The hit Bbc series ran from 1980 until 1988, and when it ended Perry and his co-writer David Croft invited Shane to join the cast of their next hit, You Rang, M'Lord?
The actor/singer also appeared in Tv shows Oh, Doctor Beeching!, Holby City, Doctors, A Touch of Frost and Emmerdale.
Perry performed 'Rise' and 'Roar' before Clinton accepted the nomination to be the Democrats' presidential candidate.
Bruce Springsteen will release rare tracks from 1966 in new album 'Chapter and Verse', which will accompany his autobiography 'Born To Run'.
There's still no reunion planned though.
Not broadcast in its entirety since 1967, a full restoration will be played in select cinemas to support Ron Howard's 'Eight Days a Week' touring...
