Dick Emery.

Dick Emery was one of the country's most loved and innovative comedians in the 70s creating a dazzling array of larger than life comic characters and catchphrases including "ooh you are awful... but I like you!".

Friends and family - including his ex wife, last girlfriend and two children - remember this charismatic, funny charmer who, in private, was a renowned womanizer. He was married four times - hence his nickname 'Emery the Eighth'.
