Freddie Starr dead: Comedian and I'm A Celebrity star dies at 76

The comedian and lead singer of Merseybeat pop group the Midniters has been found dead at his Spanish home.

The star's body was discovered on the floor of his Costa Del Sol apartment.

A neighbour, who asked not to be named, told the Mirror: "His carer found him dead in his chair at around 3.30pm.

"Police arrived first and then later an ambulance arrived and he was taken away.

"His next door neighbour who is a nurse said he was definitely dead. She said she thinks he may have suffered a heart attack."

Another neighbour added: "Heís been quite ill ever since he moved in and has barely left his apartment since moving in a couple of years ago.

"He would just sit indoors all day long and he never had any visitors. Itís so tragic."

Freddie rose to fame in the early 1970s after appearing on TV show Opportunity Knocks and the Royal Variety Performance.

He went on to star in a number of his own TV shows, including The Freddie Starr Show and An Audience with Freddie Starr.

Freddie also presented game show Beat The Crusher and appeared on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2011.

He appeared on the reality show just one year after recovering from quadruple bypass surgery following a heart attack.

He was famously axed from the show after collapsing, amid reports producers feared he could die on the show.

The comic was also the subject of one of the best known British tabloid headlines of all time.
