Tributes to Jimmy Logan from the world of entertainment

Rikki Fulton (comedian )

He was one of the greatest, the most resilient man I have ever known.

"He took some of the biggest blows his life threw at him and he always bounced back.

"Sadly the cancer was the one he couldn't beat."


"He was one of my greatest friends and I'm going to miss him dreadfully. We have worked together for 50 years at least."

Fran and Anna (Showbiz duo)

"He was a wonderful man, a fighter and a hard worker.

"It's a very sad time. He will be really missed. We can't believe we have no Jimmy Logan."

Tom Fleming (Actor)

" I happen to think J immy had much more talent and was 20 times more versatile than Harry Lauder."

Stanley Baxter (Actor and comedian)

"We were contemporaries and worked together on BBC's Its All Yours programme, through which we both became Scottish national names.

"We became instant friends and remained great friends ever since.

"He was a generous man, not only in life but professionally too.

"He will be greatly missed by Scotland and greatly missed by me."

Henry McLeish (First Minister for Scotland)

"Jimmy Logan was a legend in Scottish theatre - not just in music hall, where he was a giant of his day, but he was a very fine straight actor too.

"Jimmy Logan was loved by generations of Scots and by people with Scottish connections all over the world.

"He did a tremendous amount of work for charity, particularly for ex-service personnel being looked after at Erskine Hospital in Renfrewshire.

"He also did a great deal of work recently for cancer charities.

"He was a man of great courage and great talent and he will be sadly missed."

Robert Pratt (Jimmy Logan's agent)

"Jimmy was much loved by everyone and will be sadly missed."

"Jimmy's wife Angela, sisters Annie and Heather and all the family would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone, friends and public alike, for their love support and generous wishes during this very difficult time."
