"She's struggling"

She explained: "Thank you, she is an incredibly strong person. She only has 42% capacity left of her lungs. I must get my strength from her."

In an interview with new! magazine she revealed more about her mum's health battle.

She told the celeb mag: "She's struggling. She's slowed down so much with her breathing and it's not nice to see.

"It's really sad, but it's life and we've just got to enjoy what's left. But it's hard at the moment because I can only see her through the window."
