Debbie McGee, 64, was inundated with support after she shared a heartwarming tribute to her late husband, Paul Daniels, on Instagram.
The Strictly Come Dancing star uploaded a throwback picture to the social media platform earlier on Friday in view of her 20,200 followers to mark Brain Tumour Research’s Wear a Hat Day.
The snap showed Debbie smiling from ear to ear alongside the beloved magician and a clown, with the two men wearing hats.
In the caption, Debbie penned: “It’s @braintumourrsch Wear a Hat day. So in memory of my darling husband I’m posting this picture.”
Friends and fans of the couple rushed to the post’s comments section to send Debbie messages of support as they also paid homage to Paul.
Instagram user Parkhousepeta wrote: “Seems no time at all since your other half departed. Such a tragic loss.
“He died before his time I know and understand. And, you have to keep his memory alive otherwise it’s as if he never lived at all.”
Aile.enharvey added: “Lovely photo Debbie. About a year and half ago I was singing, walking along a London street with my (then nine-year-old) daughter. You were so sweet to us. Warm wishes.”
Shenaniganswalks typed: “Greetings from Ireland Lovely pic Debbie, hope all is wonderful, Best Nevin.”
Paul died in May of 2016 at the age of 77 after he was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour in February of that same year.
A statement from his publicist read: “One of our most beloved entertainers, Paul Daniels, has passed away at the age of 77.
“The TV star, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour earlier this year, passed away peacefully at home with Debbie at his side in the early hours of this morning.
“Debbie and the family would like to thank everyone for their support and asks that their privacy be respected at this sad time.”
Paul – who was known for being outspoken on a range of matters including politics and current affairs – achieved international fame through his television series The Paul Daniels Magic Show, which ran on the BBC from 1979 to 1994.
He made his television debut on the long-running talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1970, and came second. Television producer Johnnie Hamp then saw Paul on that show and later gave him a regular spot on a show compèred by Bernard Manning, The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club, for Granada Television.
