Coronation Street actor Geoffrey Hughes dies aged 68

Quote
Coronation Street and Keeping up Appearances actor Geoffrey Hughes has died aged 68, his agent has said.
The actor, who was known to millions as Coronation Street binman Eddie Yates in the 1970s and 1980s, died "peacefully in his sleep" on Friday night.
It followed a "long courageous battle" with prostate cancer, his family said.
Hughes, who lived on the Isle of Wight, was also known for his roles as Twiggy in TV comedy The Royle Family and Onslow in Keeping Up Appearances.
He had thought he had beaten prostate cancer in 2009, but was told it had returned after collapsing at home in 2010.

Very sad, he was a good actor.
At least 2 of my friends have prostate cancer, seems it's much more common than people think, unless I am more aware of it due to my age
