Amy Perez is heartbroken over the death of her former “Face to Face” co-host, comedian Hans Mortel, who lost his battle with pneumonia yesterday, July 14.

The TV and radio presenter thanked Mortel for the good times they had while showing a black-and-white photo of them together through her Instagram page on the same day.


“Salamat sa love mo at lahat ng magaganda nating memories together. You will always be my favorite ‘sawsawero,'” Perez said, referring to the now-defunct TV5 talk show’s live studio audience.


(Thank you for your love and all the good memories we had together. You will always be my favorite “sawsawero.”)

“I will miss you. No more pain,” she added, sending her condolences to Mortel’s family.

Mortel was hospitalized for three months before succumbing to pneumonia, his sister Jean Mortel Chupungco confirmed also yesterday.

The comedian hosted “Face to Face” alongside Perez from 2010 to 2013. He then launched his own online talk show “Tsikahans” on Facebook last year. Fellow comedian and “It’s Showtime” host Vice Ganda also credits Mortel for discovering him at a comedy bar.  /ra
