Very sad news indeed. I most recall Dianne from her Radio 1 days.
Random thought: didn’t she present TOTP once as well?
She never presented TOTP, although her Radio 1 Breakfast Show weather/travel predecessor, Sybil Ruscoe, co-presented on a handful of the 1989 editions.
I remember Diane from Steve Wright's Radio 1 shows, then on Simon Mayo's breakfast show and she also presented on The 8:15 From Manchester, a Saturday morning kid's show in the early 90s. I hadn't realised that she'd been on North West Tonight for nearly 25 years!!
It really is shocking news. She always came across as a thoroughly pleasant lady. I'm sure they'll be paying a well-deserved tribute to her on North West Tonight this evening.
Condolences to her family and friends. She will be missed.
