After news of his death was announced on Sunday morning, the likes of Piers Morgan, Carol Vorderman, Paddy McGuinness, Julian Clary, Danny John-Jules, and Labour Party deputy leader Angela Rayner remembered Des in social media tributes. 

Des’ former co-host Melanie Sykes also shared a heartfelt tribute to him on Instagram, calling it an “education and privilege” to have worked with him.
