Brian was larger than life in every way- he said things your not supposed to say yet made it okay! He believed in me and gave me chances no one else did. I had the utmost love and respect for him. I send my love to Maria and all the family xxxxxxxxx
We live in Canada now, but fondly remember the many pantomimes we came to see with Brian in when we were living in England. They were the best we have ever seen anywhere and we still miss them now. We remember Brian and the pantomimes every year and we were very sorry to hear of his passing. He was a tremendous actor and great fun. Several years running my husband was happy to receive the 'custard pie' - straight in the face! He will be sadly missed by all. Thank you Brian and the very best wishes to his family.

A lovely man who I was lucky enough to meet when I was a bank clerk at Midland Bank in the 80's. In later years I always took my kids to the amazing pantomime at the City Hall x R.I.P. Brian x
