Tributes are being paid to one of the biggest television stars of the 70s and 80s – Keith Chegwin – who has died aged 60.

The telly legend’s family said the star died at home on Monday after a ‘long-term battle with a progressive lung condition’, which had ‘rapidly worsened towards the end of this year’.

After Cheggers presented Tim and Kelly Barnes with their award, he sang a rendition of Combine Harvester - a re-worked version of the old Wurzel’s hit inspired Keith’s love for Britian’s favourite dish.
