Dad-of-three Eddie died in April at the age of 78.

He had a pacemaker fitted earlier in the year following a heart attack.

But Eddie — who had a heart transplant 17 years earlier — was readmitted to hospital after picking up an infection and died alone after he was diagnosed with coronavirus.

Heartbroken son Ryan, 37, has told of the family’s anguish over not being able to visit Eddie because of the restrictions at Southmead Hospital in Bristol, aimed at stopping the spread of Covid-19.

Ryan said: “He fought and he battled all the way.

“It sadly became just a little too much.”

Eddie, who lived near Bristol and was married to Patsy from 1983, started out as an electrician in Manchester before working as a singer then turning to comedy.

He and Syd won a 1971 edition of talent show Opportunity Knocks and became one of Britain’s best-loved double acts.

The Little and Large Show, on BBC One from 1978 to 1991, often had ten million viewers.

Manchester City fan Eddie played the fast-talking joker while “Supersonic Syd” was his nerdy, guitarist sidekick.

Syd, 77, gave the eulogy at Eddie’s funeral on April 24.
