Ben Fordham has paid tribute to his father John ‘Jack’ Fordham, who passed away 12 months ago today.

The iconic media man and celebrity agent passed away after a battle with throat cancer.

In a heart-warming tribute this morning, Ben said he would be celebrating his father’s life today.

“I know a lot of people out there who have been through these things before, when these dates come up, it can be difficult.

“For some reason, I feel a lot stronger having gone through the process.

“I’m not sure I could have done this job … if it wasn’t for the events of a year ago.

“I kind of felt like I took on some of dad’s spirit, some of his courage, certainly some of his confidence, when he left us a year ago today.”
