Statue of comedy legend unveiled.
The life-size bronze figure on the Promenade at Morecambe, Lancashire, features some of Eric's famous sayings - and the names of 103 celebrities who starred in the Morecambe and Wise Show.
On the steps leading up to the statue are the words of the duo's television anthem Bring Me Sunshine.
The song was also being performed by children from the Morecambe and Heysham High School.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were being joined at the ceremony by Eric's widow Joan Bartholomew and their children Gary, Gail and Steven.
Also invited were guests who worked with the comedy pair during the show's television heyday, including Sir Robin Day and Frank Finlay.
