While one tweeter shared a moving picture of Robin dressed like his step-son at one of his London shows just last month.

Cox married Robin in 2013, a ceremony in which Harry was best man.
A spokesperson for the family has asked for privacy at such a sad time.
Harry’s stepfather, Robin Twist, sadly passed away this week after a long battle with cancer. The family asks for privacy at this time.
The 57-year old was also father to two children from a previous marriage, Amy and Mike.
And over the years it’s been clear just how much Harry admired his step-dad.
Talking of the days when his mother first got together with Robin, the chart-topper once said,
I was always asking mum if he was coming over. But she wanted to make sure Gemma and I were okay with him being. She worried a lot so I used to text him and tell him to come over.
The ‘Sign of the Times’ singer hasn’t spoken out about the heartbreaking incident, but we’re sure a lot of love will keep coming his way on social media.
