Graham left behind his three children and five grandchildren.

Graham’s son Neil, 54, paid tribute to the TV legend, remembering his iconic and easily recognisable voice.

“Daddy was self employed and had other lines of work.

“He had a launderette, a corner shop and he did up some flats. So there was some kind of consistency .

“He got into Blind Date and then Shootings Stars.”
