“So, my dad was called Maurice, he was a giant of a man.
“He was six foot nine, he was just a real gentle giant.”
The TV star added: “We had a great relationship, but I suppose thinking about it now, I maybe would have made more of the time that we have together.
“If I’d known I was going to lose him at such a young age.
