Debbie McGee is comforted as she relays the news that a “close friend” has died. ‘It’s very sad.’
Following her “sad” announcement, DEBBIE MCGEE has received well-wishes from her fans.
Debbie McGee gave her Twitter fans some “sad” news tonight as she paid tribute to a friend. Following her admission on social media, the former Strictly Come Dancing participant received support.
She informed her 43,000 followers of the news via a post.
“So sad to learn a close friend Carol Nichols died away today,” Debbie commented.
“At 51, you are way too young. My heartfelt condolences to her family.”
Following her update, some admirers expressed their support for the actress.
“I’m so sorry to hear of your loss Debbie, Thinking of you,” one wrote.
“I’m so sorry to hear about Nichols Debbie’s loss, Thinking of you,” said another.
Debbie was also given comfort after she shared some heartbreaking news about another loss last week.
She had used social media to announce the death of the last member of her late husband Paul Daniels’ team.
“A very sad day,” she wrote in a Facebook post on July 28. The final member of Paul Daniels’ team of experts has passed away.
“Rest in peace, Barry Murray,” the radio host added.
Debbie had been married to Paul for 28 years when he died.
Debbie met him a decade before they married when she started working as his stage assistant.
She paid a poignant homage to him earlier this year, five years after his death.
In March 2016, he died of a brain tumor at the age of 77.
“Five years ago today I lost this lovely man,” she wrote on Twitter in March.
“How I miss the delight he brought me.
“There wasn’t a day that went by without me laughing.
“He has a lot of love for his sons and grandchildren.”
Debbie and Paul initially met in 1979, when she was chosen to appear with him on stage in Norfolk.
The following year, she returned to Bournemouth with the magician for another summer season.
As a result of this, she was offered permanent positions with him in London and on the BBC programme The Paul Daniels Magic Show.
