Copied from Sky news.

Keith Harris, the ventriloquist famous for his TV appearances with Orville, has died aged 67.

He passed away at Blackpool Victoria Hospital on Tuesday morning after a long fight with cancer, his agent Robert C Kelly said.

Harris' showbiz career spanned more than 50 years.

The entertainer had a number-four hit with Orville's Song in 1982 - selling 400,00 copies.

Between 1982 and 1990 he was a fixture of Saturday night TV with The Keith Harris Show on BBC One.

Harris, whose other sidekick was called Cuddles, performed at both Prince William and Prince Harry's third birthdays at the request of Princess Diana.
