He had been treated for oesophageal cancer recently, but succumbed to organ failure in his sleep, according to the Twitter account run with his playing partner, Dave Peacock. Tributes quickly appeared on social channels.

The band's debut album One Fing "n" Anuvver was released in 1975 to critical acclaim. They split in 2009 when Peacock retired after the death of his wife, Sue, but reunited a year later.

They scored hits in the 1970s and 1980s with tracks such as Rabbit and Snooker Loopy. It was the second time the show was cancelled.

Hodges was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in February, but was determined to return to the stage and had started performing again. He underwent chemotherapy and returned to performing past year but was forced to cancel all gigs in August on doctor's advice.
