Former Top of The Pops host and BBC Radio presenter Janice Long passed away on Christmas day at the age of 66 following a short illness.
Agent, Nigel Forsyth, confirmed the sad news in a statement, detailing she had suffered from a “short illness” before she passed away surrounded by family.
Janice and Paul Berry married in 2017, but had been together for many years and had two children, Blue, 25 and Fred, 33.
Her husband said: “I’ve lost the love of my life and I’m going to spend the rest of it half a person.
“She had my back from the day we met, you couldn’t possibly ask for more love and loyalty from a wife.”
