Comedian, singer and writer Victoria Wood has died after “a short but brave” battle with cancer aged 62.
Her publicist said the star “died peacefully at her north London home with family” on Wednesday.
Wood’s long-time comedy partner Julie Walters said she was “too heart sore to comment – the loss of her is incalculable”.
Victoria Wood found fame in the 1980s with her As Seen On TV shows for the BBC that were best known for the Acorn Antiques sketches. Wood also wrote and starred in the smash hit BBC sitcom: Dinnerladies.
During her career she won five Baftas, including two for her one-off ITV drama Housewife, 49.
