Sir Ken Dodd: Tributes paid as he wins award
Jimmy Cricket was among those to pay tribute to his friend and fellow entertainer Sir Ken Dodd who was honoured with a lifetime achievement award recently.
The recently knighted singer, comedian and actor will celebrate his 90th birthday on 8 November and Sir Ken continues to tour in an astonishing career which has spanned more than seven decades.
He received his award in front of a star-studded audience at the British Music Hall Society event at the Lansdowne Club in central London.
Northern Irish comic Jimmy was among those to talk at the ceremony about Sir Ken and he later tweeted:
Had a wonderful afternoon with old friends
