The mum-of-five added: “I think it’s much easier to organise a funeral if you know what they want.”

Amy has previously opened up about living with the lung condition and her funeral.

She said she had been writing goodbye letters to her family.

She said on The Jeremy Vine Show in 2019: “You write letters but I want my funeral to be a good one, because I will be there.”
