“She just brought the Australian accent around the world,” they said.

The Back to the Rafters star went on to say they were “huge fangirling” when they first met her at a Los Angeles recording studio.

They added that one of their favorite memories was sharing a flight with her, which was piloted by her Grease co-star John Travolta.

Hugh said Olivia’s death had hit the Sheridan family hard, as their sister, radio host Zoe Sheridan, “cryed more than when our father died” last year.

The actress and singer, 73, passed away peacefully Monday at her Southern California home surrounded by family and friends.

She was survived by husband John Easterling and daughter Chloe Lattanzi, who posted a heartwarming photo with her mother as a little girl.

Hugh is currently rehearsing their Solitary Man concert tour where they will be performing their favorite Neil Diamond songs across Australia later this year.

They made headlines in June when they publicly commented on his grief at their own “coming out” being mocked by the gossip columnist Rebel Wilson was trying to provoke.

Sheridan told Daily Mail Australia how devastated they were after Andrew Hornery accused them in a Sydney Morning Herald column of ‘selling’ themselves as a heterosexual sex symbol’ ahead of their arrival in 2020.
