Jim Bowen, best known for hosting '80s TV game show Bullseye, has passed away at the age of 80.

The show, which mixed darts with general knowledge quizzes, aired from 1981 until 1995 and enjoyed something of a resurgence in interest thanks to comedian Peter Kay. As well as this, Bowen also starred in the second season of Phoenix Nights, a comedy series created by Kay.

Tributes have already begun flooding in for the well-loved gameshow host.
