Strictly star reveals he danced just hours after attending father's funeral as he addresses 'preventable' death

Strictly Come Dancing star and former Rugby Union player, Ugo Monye, has opened up about the heartbreaking moment he discovered his father had cancer.The 41 year old TNT Sports pundit revealed that he was unaware of his dad's illness until after his 2021 death, which was three weeks before Ugo appeared on the ITV dancing competition. Ugo dedicated his first dance with professional partner Oti Mabuse - which took place just hours after the funeral - to his father, Theophilus, who passed away at the age of 81. Ugo shared that his father, who resided in Nigeria, was diagnosed with prostate cancer during the Covid pandemic, but this information was not relayed to his family by carers until after his passing.This revelation, along with travel restrictions at the time, meant that Ugo never got the chance to bid his father farewell, whom he hadn't seen for several years following Theophilus' move to Nigeria after separating from Ugo's mum over 15 years ago.

Prince Harry is ‘too late’ to repair his damaged relationship with royals: ‘Trust has been broken’

during his 3-day trip to London last month.Displaying tensions further, Markle also snubbed the royal family by flying to London to meet her husband at Heathrow Airport and immediately jetting off to Nigeria together.“Maybe there’s too much water under the bridge now, a lot of time has passed, trust has been broken, can that be repaired? Time will tell,” Harrold said on behalf of Spin Genie. “Actions speak louder than words.”The Sussexes have also not seen cancer-stricken Kate Middleton since she revealed her diagnosis to the world in March.Despite once being joined at the hip, Harry and the Princess of Wales, 42, no longer boast a friendship as tensions worsened following his revelations in “Spare.”Still, while a reconciliation between both camps seems like a pipe dream, Harry is reportedly looking to snap up a UK property so that he and his wife have a place to stay when visiting London.Harrold this week told The Post that Harry’s rumored UK home search was spurred on after he “realized that he’s only got one family.”The royal expert suggested that the couple are looking to revert back to their “original idea” of splitting their time equally between the UK and the US.After being evicted from Frogmore Cottage in June 2023, Harry and Meghan have not had a permanent place to stay on his home soil.The pair currently reside in their $14 million Montecito, Calif.
