Doris Roberts has died aged 90.
In a statement to People magazine, Roberts’ 'Everybody Loves Raymond' co-star Ray Romano said: “Doris Roberts had an energy and a spirit that amazed me. She never stopped. Whether working professionally or with her many charities, or just nurturing and mentoring a young, green comic trying to make it as an actor, she did it all with such a grand love for life and people and I will miss her dearly.”

Ray Romano was left red-faced when a bottle of hand sanitizer exploded in his pocket while filming a sex scene.
The 58-year-old actor is currently appearing as promotions executive Zak Yankovich in record label drama Vinyl. Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger were among the creators of the show, and it's full of sex, drugs and rock and roll - a far cry from the work Everybody Loves Raymond star Ray is used to.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night (08Mar16), Ray revealed he has only ever shot one sex scene before - and it didn't exactly go to plan.
"I did the show Men of a Certain Age and that was a drama comedy," he said. "My character was one who was married for 20 years, now divorced, going out on his first date and he's worried it's going to end up in sex and things are going to happen too fast , if you know what I mean. So we do the scene, it calls for sex to happen, and for me to push her off me because things are going too fast, and run into the bathroom with my pants around my ankles yelling 'Leg cramp!'

Mick Jagger wanted to produce a Casino-style movie based on the music business, ending up with hot new TV series Vinyl.
The show, starring Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde and Ray Romano, debuted on American TV on Sunday (14Feb16), hitting British screens a day later. The much hyped Vinyl is the brain child of Rolling Stones legend Mick, director Martin Scorsese and writers Terence Winter and Rich Cohen.
"It was a movie idea," Mick admitted to America's Esquire magazine. "I went to Marty and said that I'd like to do something that covers the actual inside of the record business, using (his film) Casino as shorthand."
The end result has been a 10-part series, based on '70s New York music exec Richie Finestra (Bobby). The theme of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll features heavily, but Mick insists the story isn't based on his own hedonistic lifestyle.
