His manager said he died after a brave battle with lung disease aged 87.

I liked Hancock's Half Hour but hated Steptoe and Son. RIP Alan, you will be missed. LL

Steptoe had its moments, IMO, but did tip into the grotesque too often. Hancock has stood the test of time. So many talented people are leaving us!
