Dame Cleo Laine on her husband Sir John Dankworth's death

Dame Cleo Laine's big break came auditioning for Sir John Dankworth in the early 1950's and they later married and became a hugely successful jazz partnership.

Sir John died in February this year, at the age of 82, after months of ill health and Dame Cleo joined BBC Breakfast in her first television interview since his death.
