Nina asked if she had good memories of Bill, with Sally responding: ‘Yes, he’s just brilliant to work with. Brilliant to know.
‘Very, very kind, very, very wise and as we saw in that piece there, really private, so for him to talk about his health was a really big deal, that’s how important it was to him.’
Nina, who was filling in for Jon Kay, quipped: ‘And a brilliant dad,’ with Sally adding: ‘We really miss him.’
