Deborah James has reportedly given her husband her blessing for him to move on with someone new following her death.
The 40-year-old author and host of the You, Me & The Big C podcast has been battling terminal bowel cancer since 2016, but has since has stopped treatment and is now receiving hospice care at home.
Deborah is making the most of her time left with husband Sebastien Bowen and their two children Hugo, 14, and Eloise, 12.
The family have been planning for life after she has passes away, with Deborah making memory boxes for her children to open during certain milestones of their lives.
One of her final wishes was to make sure her husband knew he had her approval to find someone new once he had processed her death – with strict instructions that he does not marry a "bimbo".
"I don’t think I have ever seen my husband so emotional; but now he has suddenly realised the enormity of this," Deborah said in a recent interview.
She told The Times: "I have given him strict instructions: I want him to move on.
"He’s a handsome man, I’m, like, 'Don’t be taken for a ride, don't marry a bimbo, find someone else who can make you laugh like we did [together]'."

Deborah has been married to banker husband Sebastien for 13 years.
She called him her "rock" throughout her cancer journey, from when she was first diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer in 2016, and throughout her surgeries for infections, bleeding and having 17 tumours removed.
During one near-death experience Deborah suffered, she and Sebastien had what she described as a "deathbed confessional".
She said: "When I had my bleed, my family thought I wouldn’t be alive in the morning and I lay awake all night with Seb next to me.
"I did all my deathbed confessions to him, which was hilarious as we’ve been together for ever. I was, like, 'You know I never kissed that guy'."
