Louise Clarke, one of the founding members of Pan's People, the famous Top Of The Pops dance troupe, has died aged just 63.
Louise Clarke died from heart failure on Saturday in Ipswich Hospital, Suffolk, with her family by her side.
Philip Day, publicist of the Top of The Pops favourite, made the following statement:
"Having represented Pan's People as their publicist for more than 40 years, this comes as a tremendous shock, especially as we only lost co-founder and choreographer Flick Colby in May of last year."
"Of all the clients I have had the good fortune to represent during all of those years, they were perhaps the most fun to work with, certainly the easiest to work with, were loyal to a fault and the very best at what they did."
The dancer, who formed Pan's People with Flick Colby, Babs Lord, Ruth Pearson, Dee Dee Wilde and Andi Rutherford in 1966, spent eight years as with the group on hit show Top Of The Pops.
Our thoughts are with her family at this time.
