Famous English comedian and actor, Duggie Brown, who starred on Coronation Street, passed away at the age of 82. Tommy Cannon, 84, a fellow comedian, who also performed stand-up, announced that his pal had passed.
Duggie made his most recent appearance on the soap opera earlier this year as Ted Spear, who was killed in a hit-and-run. He previously acted in Coronation Street in three other roles that were unrelated to one another.
Tommy announced the sad incident in a statement on Twitter, “Really sad to hear about the passing of Duggie Brown. Rest in peace pal, what a funny funny man- thinking of all your friends and family.”
Duggie had been in the entertainment industry as a comedian back in the 70s before debuting in the soap opera years later.
Duggie Brown was able to establish for himself a successful acting career that led him to play the role of a milkman in Ken Loach’s 1969 classic Kes.
