Broadcaster Nicholas Parsons has died at the age of 96 after a short illness, his agent has confirmed.

Axar.az informs citing BBC.

Parsons had hosted Radio 4's Just A Minute since its inception in 1967.

"He was with his beloved family who will miss him enormously and who wish to thank the wonderful staff at the Stoke Mandeville Hospital."
