The 71-year-old passed away at his home in Essex over the weekend, surrounded by his family, including wife Linda.
It comes after Kirstie had a surgical takedown of a man on social media who demanded she ‘shut up’ about lockdown guidelines.
The TV star has not been exactly shy about giving her opinions on lockdown guidelines, which has caused some robust debate on social media.
She previously expressed confusion about the roadmap out of lockdown and the effect it would have on those who may be planning funerals.
She wrote, along with an emoji of a face with rolling eyes: ‘So now anyone planning a funeral is likely to try and wait until the 17th May so they can have the amount of mourners they want.
‘But let’s stick with dates not data, ‘cos that makes so much sense.’
One follower who took issue with her comments posted bluntly under the tweet: ‘Oh shut up’.
Quote-tweeting his complaint to her 427,000 followers Kirstie, 49, said: ‘Dear Rick, you follow me. If you don’t like what I am saying unfollow me.
The TV presenter also previously vowed to boycott shops and pubs if the UK introduces vaccine passports amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
