Dennis Waterman has described the final conversation he shared with his late Minder co-star George Cole.
Waterman had spent the afternoon with Cole at his home the day before he died and said the news of his death was a "horrible shock".
"As I was leaving his house on Tuesday night, I gave him a kiss and a cuddle and told him to do exactly what he was told," he recalled.
"His last word to me, ever, was B********", and that so encapsulates George and my relationship."
The actor also described working with George was like "working with your best friend."
George was one of those rare people that everybody loved. My boast was that we laughed all day every day when we worked together.
It was just like going to work and you just happened to be working with your best friend. It was wonderful.
