In the wake of Sir David Tang’s death, notable actors, models, authors and nobility took to Twitter to remember the legendary entrepreneur, philanthropist, agony-uncle, and founder of both China Club and Shanghai Tang. Here's what they had to say...

And in a special email to #legend, Sir David's close friend, the Duchess of Northumberland, had this to say: "Very few people have the abundant gifts which were bestowed on David at birth. Watching and listening to him was always entertaining. He was one of life's givers and I will miss him hugely but consider myself honoured to have known him."
Rest in piece Sir David, you will be missed.
