Lots of people have paid tributes to Sir Terry:

BBC director general Tony Hall said: "Terry truly was a national treasure."

BBC Radio 2 controller Bob Shennan said: "Terry established himself as one of the greatest and most popular radio hosts this country has ever heard. "

Prime Minister, David Cameron said: "My thoughts are with Terry Wogan's family. Britain has lost a huge talent - someone millions came to feel was their own special friend.

"I grew up listening to him on the radio and watching him on TV. His charm and wit always made me smile."

Presenter, Dermot O'Leary said: "Sir Terry. Just the most warm hearted, generous, funny, clever, life affirming man. Part of the foundations of @BBCRadio2 so very sad."
