1 of 10 Comedian Ronnie Barker, who starred in The Two Ronnies, Open All Hours and Porridge, has died at the age of 76.
2 of 10 His comedy career began in radio and he appeared in 300 editions of The Navy Lark as AB Johnson.
3 of 10 Later in the 1960s, he joined John Cleese and Ronnie Corbett on The Frost Report, taking part in the famous Class Sketch.
4 of 10 He teamed up with Corbett for The Two Ronnies in 1971, and soon rivalled Morecambe and Wise as one of TV's top double acts.
5 of 10 The 12 series of The Two Ronnies ran for 15 years, mostly as the mainstay of BBC One's Saturday evening schedule.
6 of 10 Barker also appeared in a string of successful sitcoms, including Open All Hours with a young David Jason. The four series ran from 1976 to 1985.
7 of 10 Prison sitcom Porridge was another of his 1970s hits, and Barker considered it to be his best work. In it, he took a wry look at life inside as he was banged up with Richard Beckinsale (right).
8 of 10 He retired from showbusiness in 1988 but was tempted back to the spotlight almost 15 years later to play Churchill's butler in acclaimed drama The Gathering Storm.
9 of 10 Barker was honoured with a Bafta tribute last year, picking up the award flanked by Corbett and Jason.
10 of 10 The Bafta tribute sparked a Two Ronnies reunion earlier this year, when the pair presented vintage clips in their Saturday night Sketchbook.
