“She always put others first and ALWAYS stayed positive which kept the whole family going.

“On behalf of mum, she was so grateful for the support everyone gave us the past year as it kept her positive.”

Heather was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019.

She was then given the all-clear just before her 40th birthday last summer. However, just months later, the cancer returned and spread to her brain.

Doctors told her she had just months to live.

Appearing on This Morning in June, Heather won £2,000 in Dosh on your Doorstep and told Alison as well as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that the money would go towards her farewell party.

Heather explained at the time that she was having a ‘Wake Me Up Before I Go Go’ party.

The event took place in August as Heather was joined by her family and friends.

Speaking on This Morning after the party, Heather said: “It was nice to see people I haven’t seen for quite a long time.

“It was emotional, it was happy, it was nice to see work friends I haven’t seen for a while. It was really nice.”
