His husband Alan confirmed the heartbreaking news in a statement as he paid tribute to the NHS workers who helped him in his final weeks.

He said: “Through his career in journalism and broadcasting, Gary would have seen every variation of words describing someone’s strength and bravery, their wit and humour, their kindness and generosity, their stubbornness and determination, their sense of mischief and their joy in life’s simple pleasures.

“So, in an attempt to avoid cliché, I am just going to misquote a line of dialogue from the final episode of The West Wing, being one of Gary’s favourite programmes and something said with love and pride by one spouse to the other.

“You did a lot of good, Gary. A lot of good.”
