Charles Edward Springall, known professionally as Charlie Drake (19 June 1925 – 23 December 2006) was an English comedian, actor, writer and singer.
With his small stature (5' 1"/155 cm tall), curly red hair and liking for slapstick, he was a popular comedian with children in his early years, becoming nationally known for his "Hello, my darlings!" catchphrase.
Drake was married twice and was survived by three sons. He was married to Heather Barnes (born 1935), a dancer, from 1953 until 1971, and they had three sons. In 1976 Drake married his second wife, Elaine Bird (born 1959) - also a dancer, but the marriage was dissolved in 1984.
Drake suffered a stroke in 1995 and retired, staying at Brinsworth House, a retirement home for actors and performers, run by the Entertainment Artistes' Benevolent Fund, until his death on 23 December 2006, after suffering multiple strokes the previous night.
