The broadcaster Alan Whicker has died at the age of 87 after suffering from bronchial pneumonia.

The presenter and reporter - whose career spanned almost 60 years - passed away in the early hours of Friday, his spokeswoman said.

Whicker, who was probably best known for his Whicker's World TV series, died at home in Jersey.

The star - who had been with partner Valerie Kleeman for more than 40 years - regularly presented Whicker's World, which famously brought a glimpse of the exotic jet set lifestyles of the rich and famous into UK homes, for a little over three decades.
