Deborah James latest: Star reveals heartbreaking part she hopes to play in daughter’s wedding day

Little Eloise is just 12 years old

Dame Deborah Jones has revealed how she hopes to be a part of daughter Eloise’s wedding day in her latest Instagram post.

Deborah, 40, is currently receiving end-of-life care following her diagnosis with incurable bowel cancer.

She is mum to Eloise, 12, and Hugo, 14, with husband Seb.

Tragically she won’t be around to see her daughter walk down the aisle, however, she has now revealed how she hopes to be a part of her wedding day.

The Dame Deborah James Rose is a new floribunda which produces masses of white blooms with a subtle ballet slipper pink centre.

I actually cried when they asked me if they could name a rose after me.

The rose is repeat flowering from early June to the first frosts, with its blooms set out perfectly against the dark green, glossy foliage.

Deborah then revealed something which she said “breaks my heart”.

“What breaks my heart and brings me the most beautiful thought, is that this variety will and can now be grown forever,” she said.

She then made her wish and revealed how she plans to be a part of Eloise’s wedding day.

“And maybe one day even Eloise might choose to have it in her wedding bouquet.”
