He was readmitted in April after contracting the virus, and died alone due to quarantine measures at the hospital, which prevented son Ryan, 37, and wife Patsy from being at his bedside.
‘He fought and he battled all the way,’ Ryan told the Sun newspaper.
‘It sadly became just a little too much.’
According to the Sun, records have revealed that Large left the entirety of his estate, which was £44,100, to his wife Patsy – who he married in 1983.

Eddie played the funny guy while Little took on the more serious character.
The pair went on to become household names in British comedy, clocking in tens of millions of viewers for each show.
