Bobby Ball's sons Darren and Rob told Good Morning Britain viewers on Friday that their comedian dad was cracking jokes and laughing with nurses before his death.

The funny-man died aged 76 after being diagnosed with coronavirus, but he was still "full of mischief" up until the end, while also battling COPD.

Darren and Rob revealed how Bobby had been introducing the nurses as their "new mum", describing him as "like a cartoon" and a "legend".

They said: "He was just dad to us, but the tributes that have been coming in are wonderful, just brilliant."

The duo went on: "He was like a cartoon, completely full of mischief on and off stage, he really was. Legend."

Darren and Rob did a gig with their dad a few weeks ago but their dad – one half of Cannon and Ball – got a bigger reaction from the audience.

They said he told them: "That's how you get laughs, lads."

Bobby was admitted to hospital with a chest infection and his sons said that he had COPD too, and was diagnosed with Covid will in hospital.
