RONNIE Corbett may have been best known as a funnyman – but he was a family man as well.
His daughters Emma and Sophie look fondly back at archival family footage in new documentary The Two Ronnies: Ronnie Corbett’s Lost Tapes.
How many kids did Ronnie Corbett have?
Sophie is an actress, radio host and DJ and voiceover artist.
She has worked in the entertainment industry since she was a child.
As one of the UK's leading voiceover artists, she has voiced adverts for massive brands like L'Oreal, Ford and Carte D'or.
Sophie is also a fashion designer, and owns a boutique in Brighton named Four Candles, after the famous Two Ronnies’ sketch.
Sophie is a mum-of-two and her eldest son Dylan, 21, landed a place in top drama school RADA.
Following her father's death, Sophie reflected on her life with Ronnie as a father.
She told the Daily Mail: "It was Dad and three strong women,’ laughs Sophie. ‘But he’d just get it. He had a kind of feminine side to him, and he was often a softie.
"He was a great dad, very approachable, especially with really serious stuff. He never let us down.
"The only thing Mum and Dad ever rowed about was raising us two. Dad was stricter than Mum. I think he feared that Emma and I would be flash, and he wanted us to be grounded. The cross face he shows to Ronnie B in the Four Candles sketch… that’s when we knew we were in trouble."
Emma lives in Eastbourne is a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Association of Coaching.
She works at a prep school as a librarian and school counsellor
Emma stays out of the limelight, but spoke out upon her father's death.
She paid tribute to her father during his funeral service, saying: “My dad was truly loved. Yes, by the world – and as a family we have felt that with so many kind gestures and flowers and thoughts – but today is not about Ronnie Corbett the national treasure, it’s about Ronnie Corbett the husband, the father, the grandfather and the friend.
“He was loved and cherished and it is an enormous honour to be his daughter.
"His integrity, kindness, style and grace were ever present and never left him, even in death.”
