The much-loved - and much-admired - British comedian Norman Collier has passed away at the age of 87, BBC News reports.

A hugely popular comic and TV entertainer in the 1970s and '80s, Collier - who started out as a club entertainer in his native Hull - will be best remembered for two wonderful routines that became his trademark.

RIP, Mr Collier. Thank you f... ll... th... aughs.
