What did Coleen tell Piers about her mum on Life Stories?

Coleen opened up to Piers about the final days she spent at her mum’s bedside, and admitted she used to “dread” going to see her as the dementia had changed her.

And she revealed the last words her mum spoke before she died.

Piers said: “You mum, Maureen, suffered from Alzheimer’s for many years, towards the end of her life. Very difficult, she went into a home and became very aggressive with the care workers, which she’d never been with any of you.”

Coleen explained: “No, she turned into this woman that was so hard to watch, and then the more she lost recognition of everything, she was just angry.”

“Did she know who you were, by the end?” asked Piers.

Coleen said: “We used to go and visit her every single day and I used to dread it, I’ll be honest. And she hadn’t spoken to us, hadn’t recognised, but sometimes she had a glimmer.

“And I lay on the bed with her one time, and I just lay down on the bed and she just looked at me and opened her eyes and she went, ‘I love you’ and then she was gone again.

“It was like a… It was just a moment, the fact we were that close and she just said, ‘I love you’. I just said, ‘I love you too’, and that was the last time she spoke.”
