“There is no one else involved on either side. But she feels they have grown apart over the years because of his workload.

Johnny Briggs was a complex character, on and off screen, and we all adored him. Feel lucky that I got the chance to work with him in the factory. I am, and will always be, a Baldwin’s Casual. Night night Mr Baldwin, I’ve left you a bottle of Scotch in the filing cabinet… pic.twitter.com/eyo7e9Km9r
