Former Emmerdale star Amy Nuttall has been left devastated following the death of her mother just weeks after splitting from her 'cheating' husband.
The 41-year-old actress, who also starred in Downton Abbey, took to Instagram to share the heartbreaking news alongside a montage of pictures with her beloved mum who passed away from a brain tumour, the Mirror reports.
She wrote: “My heart is beating loudly whilst I write this. Yesterday I said goodbye to my beautiful dear mummy. "She was diagnosed in July with a glioblastoma (grade 4).
"To say it was the biggest shock would be an understatement. Together with my wonderful family, we helped care for her to the end where she died in my arms as I lay beside her on 30/10/23 at 5.05pm.”
Amy continued: “She humbled us all with how she handled this cruel diagnosis... never complaining, always smiling and bringing her daft humour to the fore every day.
"Mum, you were my rock. My best friend. I’m not sure how I’m going to do life without you but I know you’ll always be with me to carry me through as you always did.
"Thank you mummy... you gave me the best days I ever had.”
Fans and some of Amy's famous friends were quick to leave her messages of support and love in the comment section.
Her Downton co-star Joanne Froggatt wrote: “Darling, I am so, so sorry. Sending you all my love.”
A fan wrote: “I am so sorry for your very sad loss Amy.
