Eamonn Holmes has opened up about the sudden loss of his friend, Terry Wogan, saying that he had no idea that the broadcaster was ill when he interviewed him this time last year.
The This Morning presenter revealed that he was shocked to learn of Sir Terry’s illness, as it was all very sudden and they had formally compared medical notes.
Speaking to The Irish Sun Eamonn said, “It was all so sudden, and how I know is that he and I used to swap medical notes all the time about our bad knees and bad hips, all the time.
“When I was going to have my hips done, Terry would advise me on who the doctors would be, and I would get his knee doctor and we would talk aches and pains.”
Eamonn and his wife Ruth Langsford were among many who attended the tribute service for the late BBC broadcaster at Westminster Abbey today. Ruth added that the turn out at the ceremony was a testament to the kind of person Terry was.
“We hadn’t realised that he had been so unwell. It is a tribute to him how many people are turning up here, lots of his togs from Radio 2. So it’s not just celebrities here,” she said.
