The veteran entertainer died last week, after being diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour, and Martin has shared his thanks for the outpouring of support from fans.
Martin then opened up about one of the last times he saw his dad, adding: “I went to see him and he was asleep for most of the day but I managed to hold his hand and say 'I love you'... I think he heard."
Thousands of fans paid their respects to Paul following the sad news of his death, including a number of famous faces, such as his former 'Strictly' partner Ola Jordan and Louis Theroux.
Debbie McGee gave an interview the day after Paul’s death, in which she said: “I’ve cried my heart out some nights but it all happened so quickly.
“On the day he was diagnosed, the tumour had already spread so far that they knew he only had a few weeks to live.
“Then, in two days he deteriorated from feeling lethargic to having other symptoms, so he actually didn’t really know what was going on.”
A private funeral for the star is expected to take place in the coming weeks, and a public memorial will follow.
