Eric Sykes and Hattie Jacques starred in 'Sykes', a hit british sitcom which played on the BBC from 1972 to 1979.

 

Following the end of the show, Eric and Hattie appeared in several spin-off shows until the death of Hattie from a heart attack on 6th October 1980.

 

The pair played unmarried twins 'Eric', childish and accident prone and 'Hat' - the patient and sensible one.

 

Alhough they had a very loving relationship on screen, they increasingly fell out with each other in real life. So much so that Eric was banned from Hattie's funeral at Putney Vale Crematorium IN 1980.

 

This image was captured on location during the filming of an episode of 'Sykes' around 1976 in South Norwood, London.
