TV and radio presenter Jonathan ‘Jono’ Coleman has died aged 65.
The star died peacefully in hospital on Friday night, with his wife of 31 years Margot and children Oscar, 27, and Emily, 24, by his side.
He had been battling prostate cancer for four years.
Coleman’s wife Margot said: ‘Jono and I have been soulmates for close to 40 years. We have been fortunate to live a rich and wonderful life and I have been lucky enough to watch up-close someone with enormous talent and the special gift to make people laugh.
‘I will miss him beyond words and with the support of our gorgeous children, Oscar and Emily, and their partners, we will continue to live in the manner he wanted.
‘When I asked Jono recently how he wanted to be remembered, he said, “For doing a good deed every day.” Such was the generosity and caring nature of the love of my life.’
Coleman’s son Oscar shared a picture of himself and his father on social media and tweeted: ‘Love you dad. Rest in peace @jonocoleman.’
