RIP Terry Wogan

Marianne remembers Terry Wogan:
“Terry was always incredibly kind and good to me. The most wonderful moment in my friendship with Terry was when he was doing his television chat show, and I had just got clean and sober. My father was still alive, and he was so proud – my poor father had watched people put me down for years, and of course he knew me, and knew I was nothing like how the press made me out. And it hurt him. And Terry Wogan made him proud, and I thought that was wonderful. It wasn’t just being on the show, it was how Terry Wogan was with me, his questions. He stood for something – if I really had been what I was represented as, they wouldn’t have wanted me. We had a wonderful time in that last interview [in September 2014], and I told him that story – he was very pleased.”
