This Morning viewers found themselves cracking the same remark as they watched the show's tribute to Tina Turner. The music icon, who had hits including Proud Mary and The Best, passed away after a long illness, her publicist Bernard Doherty confirmed on Wednesday (May 24).
Tina, widely referred to as the Queen of Rock and Roll, had a career spanning over 60 years which saw her win eight competitive Grammy Awards including record of the year for What's Love Got To Do With It, three Grammy Hall of Fame Awards and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as having a star on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the St Louis Walk of Fame.
In a statement, a representative for the legendary singer said: "Tina Turner, the 'Queen of Rock'n Roll' has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland.
