Just had the very sad news , and I’m very upset that my dear friend NICKY MARTYN has passed away , after getting a phone call from his lovely wife Edwina.
Nicky was a winner on the original New Faces TV show , and went on to become an international Star comedian,entertainer, scriptwriter , appearing all over the world..
I first met him in the 80’s when he was one of the headline acts for P & 0 Cruises , and I had the pleasure of introducing him many times on stage during the 7 years I worked for the company , we struck up a friendship … & over the years Nicky worked as a guest star on many of the
major cruise lines ..
A great all round performer , he worked with many stars , including Howard Keel at the London Palladium, and an appearance at the Royal Albert Hall.
It was a great thrill for me when about 6 years ago Nicky said he would help me out and come and do a few guest spots on my Good old days of variety touring show , he told me he loved doing my shows , and one very special tour was an early Xmas show he did starring with Dads army vicar Frank Williams , singing star Tammy Jones , and a great company … it will always be a favourite of mine as Nicky and the cast did a one off sketch onstage with Frank , and I got to sing a duet and ad lib onstage with Nicky .. and his act brought the house down .. as he always did ..
I only spoke to him on the phone a few weeks ago, and I was hoping very soon to visit him again at his house .. I will treasure the many chats we had together .. telling me many of his showbiz stories and always having me in fits of laughter ..
I will miss you my special friend .. sending my love and condolences to Edwina , his daughter Phillippa , and all his lovely grandchildren..RIP
Sad to hear of the passing of Nick Holcroft, aka Nicky Martyn who won New Faces in the mid 70s. He was a comedy scriptwriter, stand up comedian and show host as well as an accomplished drummer, ukele banjo player and probably other instruments he didn’t tell me about. He was a regular customer of mine, a lovely friendly guy who was always happy to chat about his life in showbiz but also always showed a genuine interest in me being a musician of sorts. RIP Nick
