Meanwhile, her husband previously revealed his wife’s final words.

Gareth Eve spoke to BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire last month.

Despite his heartache, Gareth insisted he’s not an “anti-vaxxer”.

He added: “What the vaccine has done is unbelievable. The work these people have done to get the country back on its feet is outstanding.”

However, Gareth said we need to recognise the affect the jab has had on families.
