Ronnie Corbett retires from showbiz as he battles a "mystery" illness.
The 83-year-old legendary comedian has brought an end to his famed TV career as his wife Anne insists he isn't going to keep going like 'Dancing On Ice' host Bruce Forsyth.
She told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "He won't be doing any more TV - he's 83. He won't be like Bruce Forsyth."
It is said he is likely to need more tests to find out exactly what he is struggling with, as he battles health issues including chest pains.
Speaking about the day Ronnie was taken into hospital, Anne added: "We didn't know what was wrong.
"He was feeling sick in his stomach and he wasn't well. The hospital ran lots of tests, he was in there for several days."
After he complained about chest and stomach paints as well as feeling nauseous, Ronnie's wife insisted he sought medical treatment, although doctors weren't able to figure out what was causing his problems.
A source claimed: "It was a really worrying time for everybody while the doctors tried to find out what was wrong with Ronnie.
"His illness remains a mystery He is taking things easy at home and is trying to get better."
