Chas Hodges, one half of '80s pop-rock duo Chas and Dave, has died at the age of 74.

The duo are best known for their hits from the '80s, 'Ain't No Pleasing You' and 'Snooker Loopy'. The duo's official Twitter account posted the news earlier today, saying that "(despite) receiving successful treatment for oesophageal cancer recently, Chas suffered organ failure and passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of this morning."
