Celine Dion, Joan Collins and William Shatner are among the many who are sharing their condolences on social media after it was reported Friday morning that Robin Leach, the veteran television host of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” had died at age 76.

Leach, who would have been 77 next week, suffered a stroke on Monday while in hospice care in Las Vegas, according to his son Gregg.
