Victoria Wood dies aged 62 after cancer battle.
Comedian, singer and writer Victoria Wood has died after "a short but brave" battle with cancer aged 62.
Her publicist said the star "died peacefully at her north London home with family" on Wednesday.
Wood's long-time comedy partner Julie Walters said she was "too heart sore to comment - the loss of her is incalculable".
I'm so sad to hear Victoria Wood has died. She made me laugh and cry at the same time, a truly wonderful lady and entertainer. Julie Walters and Victoria Wood made such a great team, comedy, drama and just good writing about the human condition and all its flaws. I love them both!
RIP Victoria Wood
