Blue Peter presenter Simon Thomas has shared a heartfelt message to mark the fourth anniversary of his ex-wife Gemma’s death.
Gemma died at the age of 40 on November 24, 2017 just three days after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.
Acute myeloid leukaemia is an aggressive form of cancer of the myeloid cells, with only 3,100 cases in the UK each year, mostly in people over 80. Symptoms of the disease include unusual bruising and bleeding, feeling tired, losing weight and breathlessness.
To mark the devastating occasion, Simon shared a photo of their son Ethan, 11, holding a red balloon on Instagram.
