Beloved late funnyman RONNIE BARKER is to be remembered with a special blue plaque at the English home where he grew up.

The honour, which is traditionally placed at significant historical sites all over Britain, will be unveiled at the property in Oxford, England on Saturday (29Sep12).

It will be revealed by the Lord Mayor of Cowley, Councillor Alan Armitage, and chairman of the local City Of Oxford School, which donated the plaque.

The British Tv legend enjoyed his first time in the spotlight in Oxford as part of an amateur dramatic group and lived in the area all his life until his death in 2005.
