'True telly legend' dies aged 60'

Veteran TV presenter Keith Chegwin has died aged 60 after a long illness, his family has said.

They said he had endured a "long-term battle with a progressive lung condition" which "rapidly worsened towards the end of this year".

 

He died at home on Monday with his family by his side, who said they were "heartbroken".

 

Tributes have been paid from the world of entertainment for the "true telly legend".

 

His career spanned five decades. Chegwin was perhaps best known for hosting programmes including children's game show Cheggers Plays Pop, Swap Shop and Saturday Superstore.

The Liverpool-born star began his career as a child actor, starring in films such as Roman Polanski's Macbeth and TV shows including The Liver Birds, The Adventures of Black Beauty and Z-Cars. He went on to appear in reality TV shows including Celebrity Big Brother. The larger-than-life character, described by his family as "a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend", leaves his wife Maria and two children. Chegwin had been cared for at a hospice in recent weeks. His last tweet was posted on 28 September.

 

Chegwin was previously married to fellow TV presenter Maggie Philbin, whom he had met on Swap Shop. Philbin paid tribute to her former husband, saying: "It is incredibly sad. Keith was a one-off. Full of life, generous and with a focus on things that mattered - his family.
