Red Braces tribute to Bobby Ball

Tommy Cannon, Bobby Ball’s comedy partner of six decades fought back tears at the comic’s funeral following the entertainer’s death at Blackpool Victoria Hospital aged 76, just weeks after a positive coronavirus test. 

Fans lined the street outside Hope Church in Lytham, to pay their final respects to the Cannon & Ball star. A restricted number of mourners wearing red braces – a nod to Ball’s trademark twang of his braces while saying: ‘Rock on, Tommy’ – congregated outside the church to honour the much loved British entertainer.
