People Are Paying Tribute To Terry Wogan And Saying "Good Riddance" To January 2016
"It’s truly like God’s put an intern in charge of deaths and he’s going through the list of celebrities people really love."
Tributes are pouring in for Sir Terry Wogan after the radio and TV star's family said he had died after a "short but brave" battle with cancer.
BBC director general Tony Hall called Wogan a "national treasure", saying "today we've lost a wonderful friend".
Fellow radio DJs described Sir Terry as a "broadcasting hero", and a "radio genius".
Many simply said they had lost a great friend.
Prime minister David Cameron said the UK had lost a "huge talent".
Wogan was born in Ireland but held dual British and Irish citizenship, and was knighted in 2005.
As well as his Radio 2 career, where at one point he was the most listened to radio broadcaster in Europe, and shows such as Wogan and Children In Need, Wogan was for many the true voice of the Eurovision Song Contest.
Graham Norton paid a poignant tribute to his predecessor as the UK host of the show.
