Dear Friends and Followers,
I was undecided as to whether I should share this here, but I’ve decided to update you on the reason for the West Enders break. Some of you are already aware that my son Ben died at the end of January. He was 43 years old.
Losing a child at any age is devastating for a parent. My grief has been inconsolable.
He was much loved and is greatly missed. Here are a few pictures of us together over the years.
The West Enders will return next month with new episodes.
