So very saddened by the passing of a great man, good friend and Teesside legend. He, his talent and story were precious which is I made the film. I never expected it to become so precious so soon. It was an honour and privilege; and of course a great laugh working with him. He is gone way too soon but what a legacy! He will live on in the hearts of thousands around the world; and on many formats for all time. Salute! CH
