“It came completely as a shock, out of the blue. They were not a showbiz marriage if you like. Lou just did not want to be anywhere without Jamie. They were very very down to earth the pair of them. And yeah me and Sandra it was a shock when it happened. Very sad.
“Lou was happiest when she was with the kids, Jamie, the kids and the dogs. That was their life really. Walking the dogs, going with the kids everywhere.”
He added: “It’s difficult. No-one knows what goes on behind closed doors do they in life? So you don’t know. It is sad.”
