Debbie McGee has admitted she is missing her late husband Paul Daniels more than ever amid her breast cancer diagnosis.

Debbie, 60, has been told by her doctors she does not need a mastectomy, but she admitted if she had had to have further surgery she knows Paul, who died in 2016, ‘would love me whatever I looked like.’

Debbie’s tumours were found during a routine mammogram and she recently had surgery to remove the two tumours, revealing she had her bandages off 11 days ago.

The star admitted during her candid interview that she has been constantly thinking of Paul during this difficult time.  

‘When I go through anything that makes me unhappy I always think what would he have done, but this time I missed him more because I thought if I have to have a mastectomy, I thought well if Paul was here I know whatever I looked like he would love me,’ she said.

‘But now I’m on my own, I really missed him because if he was alive I wouldn’t have that extra worry really.’

While she admits it’s been a difficult few weeks, Debbie insists she has a positive attitude toward troubled times in her life.  

‘I just think in the last three years I’ve gone through more stress than I’ve ever been in my life, but there have been moments.’

‘I suffered from anxiety at one point because I was really worried about my future. I don’t worry about anything until I’ve got to worry about it,’ she added.

‘When I went for the results my sister said “why aren’t you worrying?” And I said “when I’ve got something to scared of, I will worry”, but over the last three years there have been times when I’ve found it quite hard to cope.’ 

Debbie explained that she is speaking out on her cancer battle in order to urge other women to go for their mammograms and smear tests.

‘Since I was in my 20s I’ve always had regular smear tests and mammograms. I’ve never been ill before, but this time it proved it was worth going for them for all these years, because they caught it so so early, the tissues have changed but it isn’t full blown cancer yet,’ she pointed out.  

The TV personality was married to married to magician Paul Daniels from 1988 to his death in 2016, aged 77. He had been diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour a year before his death. 

Debbie has previously spoken about her struggles after losing Paul, which hit her when she stopped busying herself with day-to-day life.

‘It didn’t come immediately after Strictly,’ she recalls. ‘I did panto afterwards — God knows how I got through that, but I did. Then I went on tour with Strictly. Then around March — a difficult month because Paul died in March, his birthday is in March, our anniversary is in March — I got home, and I just stopped.

‘I didn’t want to get out of bed. I couldn’t make a cup of tea. Part of it must have been sheer physical exhaustion, but there was more to it. I changed. My brain had changed. 

‘I’ve always been the most optimistic person. If I’m feeling low I can look in the mirror and say: “Come on, Debbie, let’s do this. Put on your make-up and smile.” Suddenly I couldn’t.’
