TV mogul Simon Cowell has paid tribute to Michael Winner, saying that "laughter was never far away" when Winner was around.
I'm very sad to hear about Michael passing away. He's become a very good friend over the years and someone whose company I have always really enjoyed.
Laughter was never far away when Michael was around and he is someone who the more I got to know, the fonder I got of him. I am sure there are a lot of other people who, like me, will really miss him.
