Following on from Deborah's legacy, Charlene reiterated: "We all have bowel movements, every single one of us has to do a poo.

"I think feeling embarrassed about having to go to the doctor to talk about that in so many ways non sensical when a doctor also does a poo and stuff as well."

The TV host added: "But if you care about your own life and care about not leaving your kids without parents for example, you know if doesn't matter what changes you see in your body, you just really really need to go and get it sorted and talk to the doctor about it because that one appointment could save your life."

Charlene went on to explain: "That's one thing that Deb's and I really did talk about because we don't want other kids to have to go through losing parents, it's not a very nice situation to be in at all."

Brenda Edwards, who recently lost her son Jamal at the age of 31, praised Deborah for her "strength" and "positivity" throughout her battle.

Continuing with the emotional tribute, Charlene shook her head in disbelief as she added: "Deb's is absolutely incredible and i do genuinely believe that she has helped to save lives."
