The 64-year-old presented the ITV fashion show Posh Frocks And New Trousers in the 1990s and appeared on Have I Got News For You and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

She was previously married to the musician and record producer Midge Ure, with whom she had a daughter named Molly. She later divorced and had a second child named Tedd.

Their statement read: “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.”

They also described their mother as “an enigma to those privileged to share her life” – adding: “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.”

Giles appeared on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2013 but became the first contestant to leave the jungle.
