Speaking earlier this year, Paul admitted he would miss Barry "greatly".

He said: "All his life, one of his problem was that he hated going to see the doctor. He hated hospitals. He couldn't stand the smell of them.

"And probably that was a big thing towards his downfall. A lot of men are like that. I'm not ... because my missus tells me to go and get that sorted, go and see what that is. But that's right. You should go."
