Otherwise known as "Smiffy", Mike Smith was one of Radio 1's star DJs back in the 1980s and did a fair amount of TV work too, such as Saturday Superstore and the Late, Late Breakfast Show. A qualified helicopter pilot, he is perhaps most remembered for surviving a dramatic crash along with his wife, ex-Blue Peter presenter Sarah Greene. Both Smith and Greene also appeared as themselves in the infamous spoof documentary Ghostwatch.
He died in 2014 following complications after major heart surgery.
Apparently, he was Princess Diana's favourite DJ.
One of the original backers of Carphone Warehouse - fact!
