Annabel Giles has died after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, her children have announced. A statement shared to her Instagram by her children Molly and Tedd said their "incredible mother" died on Monday afternoon at Martlets Hospice in Hove.
It read: "In July, Mum was diagnosed with a stage 4 Glioblastoma, a fast-growing and highly aggressive malignant brain tumour. "In the four months that followed, she displayed remarkable resilience and strength, despite undergoing brain surgery and countless radiotherapies.
"In her final weeks, she was passionate about raising awareness for Glioblastoma, embodying her lifelong commitment to helping others." I'm A Celebrity star Annabel starred in the 2013 series of the ITV show.
The star was born in Pontypool, Wales, and started her media career in the 1990s for ITV show's Razzmatazz and Night Network. She is best known as co-presenter of ITV's Posh Frocks and New Trousers with Sarah Greene, and has also appeared on Have I Got News For You, Through the Keyhole, and Noel's House Party.
Anabel appeared on the 13th season of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2013. She arrived as a late arrival alongside former Strictly Come Dancing professional Vicent Simone. Despite her late entry and after only two Bushtucker trials, Anabel became the first celebrity to leave the jungle.
After she was voted off the show she launched a stinging attack on former campmate Amy Willerton. She told show hosts Ant and Dec there were signs that it was not a level playing field, and the model carried a massive handbag which other contestants suspected contained cosmetics and other items they were not supposed to have.
"This is just an allegation and, you know, I apologise, and I will to her face, if I'm wrong," Giles said. "I tried to get her to do the washing up one night, because she doesn't really do anything around the camp, so I tried to get her involved, and she took high offence," she added.
