"He was always very warm and nice and just a terrific entertainer.

"He comes from that era of Morecambe and Wise and The Two Ronnies where you could switch the TV on and you knew you'd get a real family entertainer.

“He was such a talented man as well, he could play the piano, he could sing, he could dance, he could do practically everything.

“His career lasted 75 years, which is amazing.

“He was just a true 100% professional, who will be very, very sadly missed.”
