Psychic Sally Morgan’s husband John has died from coronavirus aged 74.
The TV star broke the news in an Instagram post today alongside a photo of her husband of 48 years.
The star, 71, wrote on Instagram: ‘On behalf of Sally Morgan and Family,
Heartbroken: Psychic Sally Morgan revealed on Instagram on Tuesday her husband John, 74, has died after a short battle with coronavirus
‘It is with deepest sadness that we announce the passing of John Morgan, after a short battle with Coronavirus.
‘Sally would like to thank the amazing NHS and the incredible Doctors and Nurses at East Surrey Hospital for their outstanding work, love and compassion throughout everything.
‘John was a loving Husband, Father and Grandfather and will be missed greatly.
‘We would like to thank you all for the love and support you have shared over the last few weeks. Sending Love & Light Sally Morgan Team x’
The former CBB star had said told earlier this month how John had been secretly battling an aggressive illness and was critically ill.
Sally had previously written: ‘As you may have noticed my wonderful husband John has been absent from social media recently. Many of you have been asking if he is OK, so I wanted to be transparent and give you an update.
‘He has been rather unwell of late and is currently in hospital. He is receiving the best care from our wonderful NHS and I would like to personally thank everyone at East Surrey Hospital for their continued hard work, love and support. I feel truly blessed that John is in such great hands.
‘After much consideration and at John’s request my tour will be going ahead and continuing as normal.
‘The support I have been receiving both online and on the road has kept me buoyant and allowed me to keep going in such a tough time.’
‘I know I haven’t been as present on my lives the the last few weeks and I hope this goes some way to explaining that. I am still here and will jump online as much as possible but please bear with me while I navigate this.
‘Sending you all so much love. From Myself, John and the entire Morgan family.’
However, Sally later updated fans and said she had not been able to visit John in hospital for three weeks and that his family would be “feel so lucky” if he made it home for Christmas.
John is also survived by their two children, Rebecca and Fern.
