Sir Terry Wogan's stellar career in TV and radio spanned more than forty years. His thrice-weekly live chat show attracted TV audiences of many millions and ran for eight years. His breakfast show on BBC Radio 2 -Wake Up to Wogan - won a host of broadcasting awards and was adored by his legions of fans, regularly reaching record-breaking audiences of over 8 million. He was also beloved for his legendary commentaries on the Eurovision Song Contest, and his presenting of BBC Children in Need - the charity has raised almost a billion pounds over the past thirty five years. The short story collection, Those Were the Days was Terry's first foray into writing fiction. He died in January 2016, aged seventy-seven.
The incredibly sad news of Sir Terry Wogan's death has affected us all deeply. He was a lovely, funny, kind, clever, generous, professional, talented and ultimately brave man.
