Tess Daly also took to Twitter, saying “So so sad at the news Sir Terry has passed away. He was the funniest, kindest man, it was a huge privilege to work with him & a joy to know him. Terry was a true gentleman on & off camera. He never stopped working tirelessly for charity. A legend is lost. My thoughts are with his family x”
Fellow Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans tweeted: “We are all so terribly sad upon hearing of the passing of Terry. I can’t put into words how the whole Radio 2 family is feeling.” Nick Grimshaw, meanwhile said “So sad to hear about Sir Terry, what a man! Funny, sharp, warm, inspiring and so much fun to be around. We’ll miss him. Rest in peace.”
Even Prime Minister David Cameron took to Twitter to express his condolences, saying: “My thoughts are with Terry Wogan’s family. Britain has lost a huge talent - someone millions came to feel was their own special friend. I grew up listening to him on the radio and watching him on tv. His charm and wit always made me smile.
These are all just some of the wonderful messages posted by famous names in honour of the great man – some from those who knew him and others from those who, like all of us, simply grew up experiencing his great talent on telly and radio.
