This morning we set aside our differences with the BBC to pay tribute to one of its greatest stars, Sir Terry Wogan, who has died at the age of 77.
The much-loved television and radio personality, who had just celebrated 50 years in the business, passed away in the early hours after what his family described as "a short but brave battle with cancer".
Paying tribute to Sir Terry, the BBC Director General, Tony Hall, said: "Terry truly was a national treasure.
"Today we've lost a wonderful friend. He was a lovely, lovely man and our thoughts are with his wife and family.
"Wake up to Wogan was for millions of Radio 2 listeners the very best way to start the day. For decades he's been such a huge part of the BBC on television and radio and leaves so many wonderful memories.
"At the centre of Children In Need since its beginning he raised hundreds of millions of pounds and changed so many lives for the better. He leaves a remarkable legacy."
Many people will also have fond memories of Sir Terry's gentle ribbing of the many atrocious Eurovision Song Contest entries over the years.
In 1978 Sir Terry reached number 21 in the UK Singles Chart with his rendition of traditional West Country song The Floral Dance.
Sir Terry is survived by Helen (who he often jokingly referred to as "the current Mrs Wogan"), his wife of 60 years, and three of the couple's children. His firstborn daughter, Vanessa, died tragically only a few weeks after her birth in 1966.
Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
