Bradley Walsh emotional as he shares Des O’Connor was ‘like a dad’ to him

Bradley Walsh paid tribute to Des O'Connor in a moving moment on This Morning as he said he was "like a dad" to him.

The Chase presenter, 60, was on the ITV show alongside comedians Jimmy Tarbuck and Tommy Cannon, the three of them talking fondly of Des, who passed away on Saturday (14th November).

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield asked Bradley about his relationship with the legendary comedian, and the ITV presenter revealed they shared a close bond.

He explained that a lady once said to him at a show and asked if Bradley was his legitimate son and he said yes and went along with it.

Bradley said in the moving moment: "I'm sure I wouldn't be where I am now without Des.

"He's like a dad to me."
