The star bravely spoke about the things that are “giving her peace” as she spends her last days at home.

Deborah said: “I’ve got a big to-do list that I’m working my way through.

“I’m worried when I get to the end I think that’s like, ‘ok, game over, I’m going to die now’.

“But obviously my priority is spending time with my family,” she added.

The BBC presenter went on: “We’re all together, I’m at my parents, it’s always where I’ve wanted to die, if you want to say that

“My husband, my kids are around, my parents, my brother, my sister

“I’ve been lying on the sofa, I’ve been doing a lot of sleeping but we are just out in the sunshine in the moment
