Charlie said: "It was tough having to do it without him because he's such a huge part of the show both on-screen and behind-the-scenes.

"He embodied the spirit of the whole thing, so his absence was really hard. He had such a great sense of humour."

Daisy added: "He definitely wanted to be in it. He wanted it to be funny.

"His family really wanted that and [said] that we should mention it [his death] in a funny way. I hope that we've made him proud."
