About this deal

It's about looking forward and can be a tricky balance, it's something Amy and I have talked about it. BBC presenter Rachael Bland's widow has revealed that their three-year-old son still expects his mother to come home one day.

The other day we went out for dinner and Amy said, ‘This is probably only the third or fourth time you’ve seen me in make-up’. He said if they had realised the difficulty, Bland may have opted to go to a hospice rather than staying at home. Meanwhile he also revealed the family has had to balance keeping Rachael's memory alive with welcoming Amy and making her feel comfortable.

And the book is carrying on the work Rachael started - her other legacy, besides Freddie, her podcast and the way it is helping people with cancer themselves, their friends and families and indeed those treating it. These are the times I love most at the moment, where we are snuggled up on the giant bed with you about to go off to sleep and I can comfort you. Love Island All Stars fans slam Liberty Poole for crying over Mitchel Taylor again despite pair's bitter split: 'They broke up like 10 times! You will always be the most special of boys - we remain the Three Best Friends wherever I am in the ether.

Ashley Park shares a hug with Emily In Paris star Lily Collins as she is 'recovering and resting in Paris'. Now aged five, he started in reception in September last year, although Rachael got to see him in his pre-school jumper just before her death. Since his wife’s death, Steve has appeared on ITV’s Lorraine, BBC Breakfast, Channel 4, Sky News and others, talking about his own story as well as dealing with his grief.

Rachael Rebecca Bland (née Hodges; 21 January 1978 – 5 September 2018) was a British journalist and presenter from Cardiff, Wales. The broadcaster, who's running the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon for Macmillan, told Lorraine that dating after loss wasn't always easy for the person in the relationship who hasn't lost someone. She was known for her podcast, You, Me and the Big C, which was broadcast while she was ill with breast cancer, and in which she discussed issues and treatment of the disease.
