This two-part documentary looks into the life and career of Britain’s greatest comic magician.

Narrated by Martin Clunes and featuring interviews from famous fans like Simon Callow and Jennifer Saunders, as well as Cooper’s family and friends, it covers Cooper’s early career at places like the Windmill Club, where he did six shows a day, six days a week, in between the more raunchy acts like the fan dancers; to his tragic death live on television in 1984, where many people thought his collapsing was part of his act.

Tommy Cooper Forever is on ITV3 tonight and tomorrow at 21.00.
