      Comedy star Don Estelle dies

      Actor and singer Don Estelle, famed for his role in hit comedy It Ain't Half
      Hot Mum, has died aged 70.

      Estelle died with his family at his bedside in Rochdale Infirmary following
      a period of illness, his widow Elizabeth said.

      The 4ft 9in star played Lofty in the 70s sitcom and also had a number one
      hit with Whispering Grass, dueting with fellow actor Windsor Davies.

      Elizabeth said: "He had a lovely singing voice, He regretted it was not more
      well known. He loved singing more than anything but he loved comedy as well,

      "He lived absolutely for his showbiz career. He loved his music more than
      anything."
