LESLIE JORDAN has died aged 67.

David Shaul, his agent, said in a statement: “The world is certainly a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan.

“Not only was he a mega-talent and a joy to work with, but he was an emotional refuge for the nation during one of its most difficult times. What he lacked in height, he made up for in generosity and greatness as a son, brother, artist, comedian, partner and human being.
