Paying tribute to a legendary and inspiring woman who died yesterday...

We were extremely saddened to hear of the passing of comedienne Joan Rivers, who died last night following serious complications – including cardiac arrest – after routine throat surgery at a New York hospital last week.

Since she first caught the attention of the world on programmes such as The Tonight Show in the 1960s, Joan has paved the way for female comedians and inspired millions around the world. Her tough-talking style of satiricial humour is instantly recognisable – who could ever forget her no-holds barred dressing down of celebrities’ sartorial choices on popular show Fashion Police recently?

Join us as we take a look at some of Joan’s best quotes, and find out how the world reacted to her death. Scroll down to see the quotes on each image…
