  • Dudley Sutton who was known for playing Tinker Dill in the TV series Lovejoy

Actor Dudley Sutton, who was known for playing Tinker Dill in the TV series Lovejoy, has died aged 85.

Sutton's character was a tout who was friends with the titular roguish antique dealer played by McShane.

Former colleagues and co-stars paid tribute to the "great actor and wonderful bloke", who was diagnosed with cancer this year.

A message from the film and TV star's family said: "Today we're devastated by the loss of our handsome Dudley, who leaves a gaping hole in all our lives".

Earlier in his life, Dudley served as a mechanic in the RAF before training for the stage at the Royal Academy for Dramatic Art.

He joined theatre director Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop group and appeared in numerous plays that portrayed working class life during the 1950s and 1960s.

Among his many TV and Film roles, the celebrated talent also played a gay biker named Pete in big screen spectacular The Leather Boys, released in 1964.

Dudley also had small parts in "Holby City", "Skins", "Porridge" and "The Sweeney", as well as starring in films including "The Devils", and "The Pink Panther Strikes Again".

Speaking about his time on the show previous year, he said: "It's what they're going to say on my obituary when I die, regardless of all the different and diverse stuff I've done throughout my life".

Sutton died at the Royal Trinity Hospice in Clapham, south London.

A message from the film and TV star's family said: "Today we're devastated by the loss of our attractive Dudley, who leaves a gaping hole in all our lives".

"We're grateful for the love expressed by friends and fans everywhere and for the extraordinary care he received at the [hospice], where he went out fighting for our NHS".

"Lovejoy" star Chris Jury, who played Eric Catchpole, was among the first to pay tribute on Twitter, writing: "I loved him dearly".

His last professional job was a lead role in a video for Tom Chaplin's single Midnight Mass in November 2017.

The pair had one child together and divorced in 1965. Such a hilarious, warm, talented man who I'm so honoured to have worked with.
