TV prankster Jeremy Beadle dead

TV presenter Jeremy Beadle MBE has died from pneumonia.

The You’ve Been Framed star became ill and was taken to hospital last week where his condition worsened.

In 2005 Jeremy was diagnosed with a form of leukaemia and also had to have a cancerous kidney removed.

He recovered but his health remained fragile.

‘Jeremy and I were firm friends for nearly 30 years. I loved and admired him and I shall miss him desperately,’ Henry Kelly tells BBC News.

The professional prankster was married with two children and two step-children.
