Jason Manford broke down at Les Dawson’s wife’s moving words: ‘He would’ve loved you’

Jason Manford, 40, recalled breaking down in his car after the late Les Dawson’s wife Tracy, told him something so moving which he will take to his grave. It comes after ITV aired a new documentary on what would have been the comedian’s 90th birthday, which paid a loving tribute to the legendary stand-up comic.

Les was an English comedian, actor, writer, and presenter, who is best remembered for his deadpan style, curmudgeonly persona and jokes about his mother-in-law and wife.

He died suddenly at the age of 62 in June 1993 from a heart attack during a medical checkup at a Greater Manchester hospital.

And while fans of the funny man may have thought they knew the real Les, never-before-seen archive footage revealed there was a lot more to him than what they got from his public persona he was famed for.

The doc featured various contributors including fellow comedians, and Jason was honoured to have been involved.
