Tributes paid to Sir Ken Dodd by boss of Carlisle's Sands Centre

Sir Ken said'I have to say in all sincerity that I have been so very well-treated and I can't praise the staff at the hospital too highly. They have been absolutely wonderful

As news of his death broke in the early hours of Monday morning, fellow comedians and TV stars paid tribute to Sir Ken on social media.

While Linda commented: "R.i.p. Ken".

According to data compiled by The Official Charts Company in 2010, only She Loves You and I Want To Hold Your Hand by The Beatles were more successful than Sir Ken's track in the 1960s.

"And he spans generations".

Liz would collect him in her vehicle from his home in Knotty Ash and take him to various events which always guaranteed much welcome publicity.

"My dad knew I was going to be a comedian". The end of an era that will never see the likes of him again.

Sweeney added that his wife Anne was a huge support to him.

"She was always there, she's a wonderful lady".

Ken Dodd, the legendary comedy king, has died on March 11 in the Knotty Ash home where he was also born and got married just two days before his death.

"There were so many strings to his bow". It was the third biggest-selling single of the decade, and remains one of the UK's best-selling singles of all time.

And on Channel 5 at 9pm, Terror in the Air is replaced by Ken Dodd: In His Own Words, a documentary about his career featuring an interview with Dodd and contributions from Michael Billington, Miriam Margolyes, Ricky Tomlinson, Roy Hudd, John Birt, Michael Grade and Tim Vine.

He wrote: "One night he said "I'll follow you home and I'll shout jokes through your letterbox". "It was a tea bag!" One of the all time greats. "How tickled I am to have known him". "When you booked Ken you dealt with Ken and Anne".

Alongside them, she wrote: "RIP Sir Ken Dodd".

Norma Hornby, manager of youth charity The Canal Boat Adventure Project, of which Doddy was patron for 39 years, last year told the Daily Mirror: "The work Ken has done for children and young people in deprived communities made them determined for Ken to be knighted".

Annie Wallace, who plays Sally in Hollyoaks, called Sir Ken a "true son of handsome Liverpool". A fine entertainer and true son of lovely Liverpool, never to be forgotten.

Dodd, who had recently been hospitalised with a chest infection, married his long-time partner Anne Jones on Friday.

"He lived to ideal his art and entertain his live and adoring audiences", she said.

"A book of condolence will open later today and flags will fly half mast".

Lord Mayor, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, said: "Liverpool has lost one of its greatest sons. He will be sadly missed".
