While talking on GMB in August, she said: “He’s very much still with us. There seem to be different challenges every week.
“I know everyone has been so lovely and are concerned, but then you don’t want to talk about it on GMB every time because it’s not cheering up everyone that’s trying to cope with COVID.
“Then, on the other hand, last week when we were having fun and games, you feel almost bad because you think, ‘Oh, I’m laughing and he’s still there in a kind of minimal conscious state and it’s a difficult balance.
“It was worrying me last week, he’s still got lots of challenges, challenges with his food and with his lungs… it’s a waiting game really.
