MINDER STAR GEORGE COLE NO MORE

Date:

Actor George Cole, best known for playing Arthur Daley in TV’s Minder, has died aged 90.

Cole played the Cockney wheeler dealer Daley for 16 years, between 1979 and 1994.

He also starred in a number of St Trinian’s films as shady businessman Flash Harry.

Agent Derek Webster said Cole had died at the Royal Berkshire hospital following a short illness, surrounded by his family.

“It is with deep regret that I have to announce the sad death of one of our most loved and respected actors,” he said.

Cole played opposite Dennis Waterman’s Terry McCann, an affable bodyguard, in ITV’s Minder for more than a decade.

Waterman, who sang the theme tune, left the show to be replaced by Gary Webster for the final two series.

Arthur Daley became a TV legend as a small-time crook who was always dreaming of bigger things, with the series regularly drawing in audiences of 17 million.
