“A year ago today I had my cancer surgery and an awful tumour removed that would have killed me. So a huge thank you to the amazing teams @SalfordRoyalNHS @TheChristieNHS @gi_upper @BilalAlkhaffaf and all the other incredible people @NHSuk that saved my life. I’m in your debt.”

On a JustGiving page set up in honor of Troyano, his wife posted a message from the chef: “A special thankyou to Macmillan Cancer Support, East Cheshire Hospice and the NHS including Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and Stockport NHS Foundation Trust for trying to save my life and their tireless work to try and eliminate cancer. But more importantly a massive thank you to all the amazing professionals who really did try their absolute best for me, showed me absolute compassion and gave me more time than what was seemingly possible. I thank you sincerely.”

Simon Wood, British cook and winner of the 2015 MasterChef competition, paid his condolences. “Louis was a great guy, I had the pleasure of working with him many times. Such a loss. My thoughts are with all his family.”
