Friends and former colleagues of BBC Radio 1 presenter Mike Smith have described their "heartbreak" after the 59-year-old died in hospital. Breakfast Show alumni including Noel Edmonds, Mike Read and Simon Mayo joined others from the world of entertainment in mourning Smith's death. Edmonds, a long-term friend of the couple, said in a statement: "I am totally stunned and heartbroken for Sarah and his family.
Mike introduced me to motor racing and I introduced him to radio. He was so much more than simply a presenter. Mike was that rare individual - the consummate broadcaster in an era when professionalism, dedication and hard work were truly valued. I am typing this through the tears. I wish I had told him more forcefully and frequently how much I admired his talent and valued his support.
