When asked if she has planned her funeral, she replied, “yes”.

“Very similar to my wedding,” she added. “My coffin has got photos of me from when I was baby, all the way up to my wedding day.

“I’ve done a VT for my boys growing up, that’s taken me probably about 20 times to watch it without crying.”

She continued: “I also feel lucky in a sense, especially with Covid, people have died without and not been able to say goodbye.

“I feel privileged in a way that I can say goodbye, I can go and plan my funeral.”
