Singer Andy Williams has died at his home in Branson, Missouri, after a year-long battle with bladder cancer. He was 84.

He was best known for his recording of Moon River, the Oscar-winning song featured in the film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Jimmy Osmond told BBC News from New York that Williams was like family, and that without him, the Osmonds 'probably wouldn't have been around'.
