[A statement said: 'It is with great personal sadness that
on behalf of Yvonne Ball, and the family, and Tommy Cannon,
I announce that Bobby Ball passed away at
Blackpool Victoria Hospital on October 28, 2020
approximately 9.30pm.
'Bobby had been taken to the hospital for
tests as he started with breathing problems.
At first it was thought to be a chest infection but
a test proved positive for Covid-19.

I’m honestly gutted he used to be able to really crack me up, like cry laughing every time. Saw Cannon & Ball a few time’s in Blackpool too when I was a kid.

RIP legend.

Watched an episode of Not Going Out earlier, he played Lee Mack's Dad in it - so, so funny.

RIP.
