EastEnders star and close friend Max announced Terry’s death on Instagram earlier this year, saying: ‘I will love you until my last breath’. It is thought Terry died in hospital in Mexico.

The Big Talent Group chief looked after clients including TOWIE’S Yazmin Oukhellou, Gogglebox’s Amy Tapper, and Callum Izzard from Ibiza Weekender and was well liked within showbiz circles.

His friends had set up the fundraising page to pay for the ‘astronomical’ cost of treatment costs as well as a flight home, with stars including Natalie Cassidy, Alison Hammond, Max, Gillian Taylforth, Letitia Dean and Chizzy Akudolu chipping in.

Sharing a heartfelt tribute, Max, who plays Ben Mitchell in EastEnders, wrote: ‘I will love you until my last breath. You took me in when no one else would have me. You looked after me, and protected me when I was at my lowest. 

‘You nurtured me and helped me see light. You sprayed my feet when they were stinking out the house.

‘All you did was care about the people you loved. When things got bad, we’d cuddle each other on that sofa in Marylebone like two toddlers, and tell each other we’ve got this. 

‘You battled everything, daily, and won. And this time this c*** of a virus got you. But you still fought. I don’t know a life without you.

‘I don’t want a life without you. But I know you’ll be with me. You made my family feel like they were the only people in the world. 

‘I will never forget when you ran down the red carpet at the NTAs to make my Nan feel like a queen. The last messages we sent each other before you fell ill, were that we loved each other. And I always will Tel.

‘Thank you for every thing you gave me. My life will never be the same. Sleep well, my wonderful friend (sic).’

It is not clear when Terry travelled to Mexico, which had counted more than 1.7 million Covid-19 cases and more than 150,000 deaths at the time.  

Friends: Max penned: 'Thank you for every thing you gave me. My life will never be the same. Sleep well, my wonderful friend (sic).'
