In this tribute to one of Britain's most popular entertainers, friends, family and co-stars celebrate the life and work of comedian and actor Bobby Ball, who died recently.

From his career as half as one of the nation's favourite double acts - Cannon & Ball - to his appearances in series like Benidorm, Not Going Out and I'm A Celebrity....Get Me Out Of Here!, this is the story of how a factory welder from Oldham went on to become one of the most loved stars on British television.

The documentary, bringing together clips from some of Bobby's most celebrated TV moments with stories from those who knew him best, is narrated by the man who shared the limelight with Bobby Ball for 57 years - Tommy Cannon.
