Annabel Giles, a well-known TV presenter, shared a touching final post on social media before her sad death.

The 64 year old, famous for co-hosting ITV's Posh Frocks and New Trousers, had posted about celebrating her birthday earlier this year, saying she was having a "lovely day".

Her children, Molly and Ted, revealed that their mum spent her last days raising awareness for Glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer.

The star had written on Instagram: "I'm in good company!!! Having a lovely day and the sun has come out especially."

This post came just weeks before her devastating brain cancer diagnosis. Annabel also shared pictures of famous faces who share her birthday, including Cher, Greg Dyke, Chris Froome and Louis Theroux.

Annabel "kept everyone smiling" in her last days and her kids lovingly shared how the star "kept her sense of humour till the end", inspiring her family with her kindness and laughter.

The I'm A Celebrity star, who was on the ITV show in 2013, was also known for her appearances on Have I Got News For You, Through the Keyhole and Noel's House Party.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Annabel's children said: "It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the death of our incredible mother, Annabel Giles, who passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon at Martlets Hospice in Hove.

"In July, Mum was diagnosed with a stage 4 Glioblastoma, a fast-growing and highly aggressive malignant brain tumour.

"In the four months that followed, she displayed remarkable resilience and strength, despite undergoing brain surgery and countless radiotherapies. In her final weeks, she was passionate about raising awareness for Glioblastoma, embodying her lifelong commitment to helping others.

"Mum was truly one of a kind, an enigma to those privileged to share her life. True to her nature, she kept spirits high and maintained her quick wit until the very end. Her humour and laughter will leave us inspired to live life to the fullest, just as she always did."

They said: "We thank you for your love and support and kindly request that you respect our privacy at this challenging time. In lieu of flowers or other gifts, we would be grateful for donations to Martlets Hospice, whose exceptional care was a great source of comfort throughout this journey. With heartfelt thanks, Molly and Ted x."

The TV star and actress had one daughter with her ex-husband and Ultravox lead singer Midge Ure, who she was married to from 1985 to 1989. She also had a son named Ted, born in 1998.
