Veteran broadcaster and writer David Frost has passed away from a suspected heart attack aged 74.

According to BBC News, the writer was on board a cruise ship when he passed away.

A family statement said he was giving a speech aboard the Queen Elizabeth on Saturday night.

Frost’s career spanned journalism, comedy writing and television. He was famous for fronting programmes including That Was The Week That Was and The Frost Report.

The broadcaster is perhaps best remembered for his famous interviews with the former President of the United States, Richard Nixon, which was the subject of the film Frost vs Nixon.

A statement said: “His family are devastated and ask for privacy at this difficult time. A family funeral will be held in the near future and details of a memorial service will be announced in due course.”
