Thinking about eight-year-old son stopped former Sky Sports presenter from ending his life after the sudden death of his wife.
Sky Sports presenter Simon Thomas has said his son gave him reason to live after the death of his wife Gemma last Christmas.
Today’s This Morning had viewers and its hosts in tears when Simon Thomas was interviewed about the passing of his wife. Appearing on the show (27 February) Simon, 45, spoke to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about his late wife, Gemma, who he lost in November. As if that wasn’t heartbreaking enough, she passed away within three days of being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.
