Sad: Deidre Sanders, 77, teared up during Tuesday episode of This Morning as she revealed that her husband of 55-years, died just before Christmas

She said: ‘A special thing for me, a lot of you know my husband died just before Christmas on 16th December, but this call came through a week before he died, so that was really, really special for me.

‘I went and got the email and I could share it with him and say what had happened.

‘I was with Rick for 55 years so it was really great. He was always a great tease, so he had to get in a few digs first, but he did the next day tell my daughter and tell me just how proud he was so that was really, extra special.’
