Magician Paul Daniels has died aged 77, his publicist has said.
He had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour in February.
Daniels was born Newton Edward Daniels in Middlesbrough and developed his magic skills in working men's clubs, making his TV debut on talent series Opportunity Knocks.
He went on to front the BBC's Paul Daniels Magic Show, which ran for 15 years, and became one of the biggest stars on British TV.
Daniels was known for a string of catchphrases, including the line: "You'll like this... not a lot, but you'll like it."
He had recently returned from hospital to his Berkshire home in March, following his diagnosis.
Grew up watching this guy, Great fun and a great Entertainer.
Was a real decent guy.
