Earlier this year, Amy spoke about her decision to spend more time in Spain during a joint appearance on Loose Women with her daughter.

She said: “If I go out walking, over here I do 2,000 steps, but over there, because the weather is so good, I am doing 10,000 because the air is warmer and drier.”

At the time, Katie said of her mum’s illness: “I haven’t processed it yet. When you hear the word terminal, you think it could be next week or a month, but she still has got lots in her.

“Lots of energy, still moaning at me.”

Meanwhile, Amy became tearful as she spoke about her condition during an appearance on The Jeremy Vine Show in April.
