Sleep well Sir Terry

Sleep well Sir Terry

I'm still full of tears that we've lost our true national Treasure Sir Terry. Working with Sir Terry was a joy. I'm honoured and appreciative that I got to work with THE best. 

He took me under his wing and taught me so much without even trying. His comedy timing was perfection and he always had a better and wittier line waiting in the wings. 

When he was presenting he took time, savouring each word and directing it to an audience he loved. He meant every word he said and had so much fun along the way. 

When working with him the lines blurred between being on air and off air as his natural ease and flow moved from chatting off stage to talking to the nation. 

Everyone loved Terry on set as he talked and joked to everyone nearby with his forever cheeky smile and that glint in his eye. He always supported me and championed what I was doing, and for that I'm forever grateful. 

I wish I'd known when I saw him in November that it would be the last time, as I would have thanked him for so many things and hugged him that bit tighter.

Sleep well Sir Terry
