SWANSEA comedian Kenny Smiles has died following a suspected heart attack.

The 67-year-old entertainer, who was from Brynhyfryd, had suffered from heart problems and passed away at the Heath Hospital in Cardiff earlier this week.

Highlights of a successful career included appearing on television on The Comedians as well as summer seasons at Blackpool with Russ Abbott.

He had been working up until six weeks ago on cruise ships.

Swansea Sound presenter Kevin Johns, who knew Mr Smiles through charity work, said: “I’m devastated, he was a very successful performer and a lovely man.”
