'A gentleman': Mike Morris has died from heart failure at the age of 65
Former TV-am presenter Mike Morris has died from heart failure at the age of 65.
Morris, who is best remembered for his spell presenting on the ITV breakfast television station, had been battling cancer.
Famous for his distinctive moustache, Morris joined TV-am as a sports presenter, eventually becoming the host of Good Morning Britain in 1987. He remained with TV-am until 1992.
His co-presenter Anne Diamond yesterday described Mr Morris as 'a gentleman'.
She said: 'I presented many, many memorable breakfast television programmes with Mike and I’d just like to say, as a way of tribute, what a lovely, lovely man he was.
'He was incredibly popular, I think, because he was just like the guy next door.
'It was a completely sincere image he had of just being the ordinary bloke next door, who asked the ordinary bloke-type questions.
'That endeared him to a great many people. It certainly did to me.
'He was always a gentleman, he was always generous. He was very, very funny. A real family man and I must say I'm terribly sad to hear he has died.'
