The couple who won the 'gay cake' case on Wednesday speak out...
Michael Cleere, the much loved Premier Christian Radio presenter, has died after a long battle with illness.
The host of Worship at Home, Night Light and That Friday Feeling became a listener favourite through his witty and humorous presenting style.
Michael's radio career spanned more than three decades and has seen him progress from pirate radio to a multi award-winning stint at the BBC. Along the way he's served his time as a radio announcer, newsreader, and programme maker.
He joined Premier Christian Radio in 2006 and since then he's built up a loyal following of late night listeners and Sunday morning worshippers.
Alongside his radio work, Michael led a comprehensive programme of civic engagement within Southwark Council.
Paying tribute, Premier's Director of Content Charmaine Noble-McLean said: "He was funny, sincere and there was something authentic and honest about the way he presented.
"When I met him for the first time that's exactly what I got.
"That's what he then brought to Premier. He knew how to get alongside the listener and really made you feel like he cared and had time for you. That was what was really special about him."
Michael's family has asked for privacy at this difficult time.
More details on a tribute to him will be announced at a later date.
