Ronnie Corbett. Copyright: BBC

Ronnie Corbett CBE was a Scottish comedian and actor, best known for his long-running comedy partnership with Ronnie Barker. Noted for his diminutive stature, Corbett was initially the bigger star, having an established film and stage career in particular, and later found continued solo success in a string of BBC and ITV sitcoms built around the persona of a middle-aged man unable to break from the apron strings of a domineering mother.
