Despite her heartbreaking loss, Jane has subsequently said she has come to realise ‘life’s too short’.

Her ‘life motto’
Reflecting on lockdown also seems to have helped Jane focus on what matters most to her as she has grieved.
Just a couple of month’s after Eddie’s passing, she told the Mirror she doesn’t want to waste a minute of her life.
She vowed in May 2021: “If we know anything about what has happened in this past year, it’s that life is too short.”
Life is for living and I will live it even more.
Well-travelled Jane added at the time she couldn’t wait to make the most of opportunities when restrictions changed.
“This has taught me that life is for living and I will live it even more when we are allowed out again,” she said.
Later in 2021, Jane revealed she changed her mind about retiring.
She indicated performing was helping her with her grief.
Jane said during an appearance on Loose Women: “It’s been my healer being out with the fans and I thank them so much for everything that they’ve done for me.”
And just a few days later, the telly fave told fans she would be heading to the Caribbean for a “new adventure”.
Holidaying With Jane McDonald & Friends is on Channel 5 tonight (April 22) at 10pm.
