Freddie Starr died from a heart attack, according to his autopsy.
The comedy legend passed away at the age of 76 while at his home in Costa Del Sol, Spain, on Thursday (09.05.19) and according to a post-mortem which was carried out at the Institute of Forensic Medicine, his cause of death was a heart attack.
A police insider told the Metro: "Freddie Starr died from a heart attack. There is absolutely no doubt. He had a history of heart problems and the autopsy has revealed a heart attack was the cause of his death."
The "Freddie Starr Show" star had previously suffered from coronary artery disease and had a quadruple bypass following a heart attack in 2010.
Meanwhile, Freddie's carer Nelly - who is believed to have found the comedian's body - said he had been "fine" when she left him to go to the supermarket, but had passed away in the 30 minutes she was away.
She said: "I went to the supermarket for maybe 30 minutes and came back he was dead. He was fine before. He had many problems but I never knew he was bad. He was watching TV, he never said he wasn't OK or he wasn't feeling well. He was playing with his cat, nothing was bothering him."
And a neighbour of Freddie's said the funny man hadn't been "well for some time".
They said: "Freddie hadn't looked well for some time and rarely ventured out. Whenever he appeared recently his head would be down and he'd be smoking."
Freddie rose to fame in the early 1970s after appearing on TV show "Opportunity Knocks" and the Royal Variety Performance, and went on to star in a number of his own shows including "The Freddie Starr Show" and "An Audience with Freddie Starr".
He also presented the game show "Beat The Crusher" and appeared on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" in 2011 - just a year after recovering from quadruple bypass surgery following a heart attack - but he was forced to leave the jungle early following a suspected allergic reaction.
