    Default Keith Chegwin: Television presenter dies aged 60

    Veteran TV presenter Keith Chegwin has died aged 60 after a long illness, his family has said.

    They said he had endured a "long-term battle with a progressive lung condition" which "rapidly worsened towards the end of this year".

    He died at home on Monday with his family by his side, who said they were "heartbroken".

    Chegwin was known for hosting programmes including children's game show Cheggers Plays Pop and Swap Shop.

    The larger-than-life character, described by his family as "a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend" leaves two children and his wife Maria.

    He had been cared for at a hospice in recent weeks.
