TV magician Paul Daniels has died aged 77, the Press Association has reported.
He died at his home in Berkshire on Thursday with his wife, Debbie McGee, present, the magician's publicist said.
"Debbie and the family would like to thank everyone for their support and asks that their privacy be respected at this sad time," his publicist said, according to BBC News.
Last month it was announced the TV magician had been diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour.
"Our life has been full of laughter, and that's what it's been the last few weeks, up until the last 48 hours when he slipped into a sleep," McGee told BBC News.
"But even minutes before he slipped into that sleep he was smiling at me, and joking, and singing Beatles songs."
The magician's youngest stepson, Gary, set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for four charities, including Brain Tumour Research.
Tributes are being paid to Daniels online, including from Louis Theroux, who made a BBC documentary about the couple in 2001.
Daniels was a mainstay on British TV, with his eponymous magic show running on the BBC from 1979 to 1994.
He also presented quiz shows such as Wipeout and Odd One Out, as well as kids TV show Wizbit.
