Flick Colby, a dancer and choreographer who helped make Top of the Pops troupe Pan's People a national institution, has died at the age of 65.

Colby co-founded the group, who, in the days before music videos, accompanied hits on the weekly TV show when artists could not perform.

They first appeared in 1968 and spent eight years as the resident dancers.

Colby died of bronchial pneumonia at her home in Clinton, New York, on Thursday, the group's publicist said.

She also worked on other television shows including Sez Les, The Two Ronnies, The Black and White Minstrels Show and The Goodies.
