Comedian Victoria Wood dies aged 62 after short cancer battle.

Comedian Victoria Wood has died aged 62 after a short battle with cancer, her publicist has said.

The actress died at home in London surrounded by her family.





Damn, really liked her, R.I.P

2016 has been a right celebrity cull so far. :(

Funny lady. My mum's a big fan so saw quite a bit of her stuff growing up. Didn't see this one coming.

RIP
My face is tired.

Really is a big shock, a very funny and creative woman indeed. Such a sad loss. :(

Same here Sly, I wouldn't have put her anywhere near the top of the Celebrity Deathwatch list.
If my money was on anyone atm it would have been Bruce Forsyth.

Bruce Forsyth is actually the Grim Reaper, and won't ever die while there are others to take.

RIP to Victoria Wood, I was never a fan but that's not the point.

She was born not fifteen minutes from where I live in Prestwich as it happens. I too happen to remember many an evening watching her on the box with my Dad as she performed her rather cleverly orchestrated piano comedy songs. A very talented lady who will be missed no doubt.

Probably not as well known, but WWE's Chyna has also passed away.
