Terry Wogan.

Veteran Irish broadcaster who had a fifty year broadcasting career in the UK Sir Terry Wogan has died at the age of 77 battling cancer.

The family acknowledge that the popular entertainer who hosted BBC Radio 2's 'Breakfast Show' for years and fronted his own chat show in the 80s called 'Wogan' and was the main anchorman for the BBC's annual charity bash 'Children In Need' was indeed very popular amongst the public however they asked that their privacy be respected at this time.

Graham Norton, Dermot O'Leary, Aamon Holmes, Bruce Forsyth and many others have all paid tribute to the Irish entertainer and broadcaster.

Terry Wogan was not everyone's cup of tea it has to be said some found his broadcasting style whether it be through the media of television or radio somewhat patronising but as to whether he really was like that or not cannot be said.

Wogan who received his knighthood in 2005 from the Queen leaves wife Helen, daughter Katherine and two sons Mark and Alan.

Wogan who had recently been keeping a low profile had according to friends been wanting to return to work and once was quoted as saying that if someone wanted him to retire they would have to carry him off stage bodily.

Wogan also presented the Eurovision Song Contest for years which saw British artists like Bucks Fizz win in 1981 but since then has descended into something of a farce where Wogan also gave up his announcing job on the Eurovision Song Contest to be replaced by fellow Irishman and broadcaster Graham Norton.

So Terry Wogan has left us to join the many celebs who have already left us all taken out by the insidious disease cancer.

Whether you liked Wogan or not as a personality is a side track really because when such behemoths of entertainers like this are no longer with us it seems today that today's entertainers and presenters cannot cut it in the entertainment world as far as I am concerned.
