Sir Terry Wogan has died at the age of 77. The BBC has confirmed the TV and radio presenter was suffering from cancer.

Long before I knew or even dreamed of playing songs and talking on the radio Terry Wogan played a role in my life.  His voice was probably one of the first I remember hearing as my Grandad always insisted on having him on every morning, purely because aged 7 it really wasn't to my liking, he'd always wind me up by turning him up and making me stop talking when he spoke.  He was however an amazing broadcaster and I’ve listened to him many times since. 

He wasn't just known for his radio show - There was Children in need and countless others including his famous chat show and  the Eurovision Song Contest which he pretty much made worth watching just for his comments.

I’ll remember him most for the fun that was Blankety Blank, two contestants and a bunch of celebs all at ease thanks to the manor of a great gentleman.  However the celebs on the show didn’t always have it easy, nor did Terry on occasion especially when it was Kenny Everett’s turn to make an appearance.
