"He said, 'No. I've not been too well'".

"We pulled out and I was putting petrol in my auto and he was at the other side of the pump putting petrol into his". Rest in peace, Freddie.

Before continuing: "He was the funniest man I have ever seen. He had amusing bones".

TV presenter Amanda Holden, who is from Bishop's Waltham, said she hopes Starr is "remembered with a smile".
