Nickowentv, a journalist, said: “Terrible news.

She added: “I feel like my Mum when she started to lose old friends. RIP Paul.”

Paul began his career in newspapers and radio before switching to television, where he worked on both sides of the camera.

As a reporter he covered stories from the collapse of Communism to the National Unusual Pets Show.

When he was a producer, he was involved in factual entertainment.

Lorraine met Paul when they worked together on TV-am at the beginning of her career.

In early October 1984, she joined the programme as the Scotland correspondent, and from 1989 she presented the show’s Summer Sunday programme.

Throughout the rest of 1989, Lorraine provided cover for presenters on the main weekday programme.

The presenter then moved to GMTV, getting her own self-titled instalment from 2010.
