The BBC broadcaster was renowned as the host of Children In Need and commentator of The Eurovision Song Contest. The star was always jolly on camera but unpublished footage from 1980 by BBC South in Southampton shows that behind it all was a man that developed concerns over what people thought of him.

The star died at the age of 77 in 2016 reportedly from prostate cancer , which he kept from his friends and out of the public light.

The star, whose memorial at Westminster Abbey reflected the respect he gathered over the years, reportedly told friends he was suffering from a bad back.

Although he died surrounded by his family, a close friend called Henry Kelly, described the shock of his death.

Shortly after Wogan’s death, Mr Kelly told The Sun: “I didn’t know he was that seriously ill.

“He put it out that he had a bad back.”
