Tributes have been paid to Norman, who had Parkinson's disease, by celebrities including Danny Baker and Jon Culshaw.
Jon wrote on Twitter: “Funny, funny, wonderfully funny man. People would be permanently laughing whenever they were around him."
Norman was a regular visitor to this area. In July 1976, holidaymakers on Cleethorpes seafront got a brief taste of what this season’s summer show on the Pier Pavilion had in store when the whole cast, including Norman, took a stroll along the beach.
