Veteran broadcaster Sir David Frost has died at the age of 74 after a suspected heart attack while on board a cruise ship.
A family statement said he had been giving a speech aboard the Queen Elizabeth on Saturday night.
Sir David's career spanned journalism, comedy writing and daytime television presenting, including The Frost Report.
Internationally, he will be remembered for his revealing interviews with former US President Richard Nixon.
The BBC's Barney Jones, who edited his Breakfast with Frost programme on the BBC for more than 10 years, said: "David loved broadcasting, did it brilliantly for more than 50 years and was eagerly looking forward to a host of projects - including interviewing the prime minister next week - before his sudden and tragic death. We will all miss him enormously."

Hall was filmed this past weekend in the hospital, during her final days. CDC officials said they have not decided whether the most recent footage would be used in future spots.
