Ronnie Corbett - Ronnie Corbett Retires From Tv Due To Health Woes

Beloved British comic Ronnie Corbett has retired from Tv work after a health scare left him in hospital.

The 83 year old fell ill at his London home last Sunday (09Mar14) after complaining of chest and stomach pains. He was taken to a nearby hospital but doctors were unable to diagnose the problem.

Now Corbett, famous for his longrunning Tv comedy act with late star Ronnie Barker, has decided to step away from the spotlight to help preserve his health.

His wife Anne tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "He won't be doing any more Tv - he's 83. He won't be like (veteran British Tv star) Bruce Forsyth.

"We didn't know what was wrong. He was feeling sick in his stomach and he wasn't well. The hospital ran lots of tests, he was in there for several days."

It's the latest health worry for Corbett - he collapsed during a celebratory dinner on New Year's Day in 2012 and spent several days in hospital in April of the same year (12).
