BBC presenter Lauren Laverne had to leave her presenting gig at Glastonbury Festival following the tragic news of her mother’s death. Lauren, 44, told her Instagram followers that she had been left “heartbroken” by the news.
This morning, Lauren told her 221,000 Instagram followers: “Yesterday I lost my Mam, Celia.
“She was the kindest, most compassionate and most tenacious person I have ever met.
Lauren went on to say: “We are all utterly heartbroken to lose her.
“She had just given the kids their Glastonbury spending money and was looking forward to watching Paulie (as he was always known in our house – her favourite Beatle) tonight.
“She’d been a fan ever since she saw him at the Sunderland Empire in 1963 (and later met him later with me – he was just lovely to her).
“Mam, I love you forever. Thank you for my fantastic life.
“I have no idea what I’m going to do without you, but I’m going to try to make it interesting and you will be in my heart, always.”
