“The news is just devastating. Sarah and Mike were a wonderful couple – it is truly horrible to hear.”
“I knew Mike as there were only five of us to have presented the Breakfast Show at that time.
“He became a mainstay of Radio 1, was highly successful on television too, and started up his own business which he was very good at. “I worked with Sarah for a number of years, including around the time of the crash, so I was very fond of them both. “The helicopter crash was really bad but they just got on with it and married. “Mike was a very affable guy, fantastically business-like. It’s a real loss and has come as quite a shock.”
