Anne lost her third son Sebastian in 1991 to cot death, just four-and-a-half months after he was born.

Speaking candidly to the panel she explained: “It was 25 years ago so he would have been 25 this year and it never leaves you.

“But it is wonderful to talk about him because it makes him real and he is real to me and he always will be.”

She continued during an interview in 2009, saying: “You never get over the death of a child.

“My third son, Sebastian, died of cot death in 1991, and all you can do is try and live every day.

“I still dread to think how I would have reacted had he been my first, because I’m sure I’d have seen no point in going on. But thank God I had two other children.”

Back in 2017, while discussing the physicality of heartbreak on Loose Women, Anne opened up on her own experience with grief.

She explained: “When you do go through a terrible, terrible experience like losing a child or even a divorce, you do feel a physical pain.

“When you explain it to people years later you say look you never get over it, but it’s like learning to live without a limb.

“It is like learning to live with a part of you that is no more.”

After Sebastian’s death, Anne started to campaign to raise awareness of cot death as she fronted the Back to Sleep Campaign.

In 2016, the Lullaby trust reported that the rate of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) had fallen by 80 percent.

Anne went on to welcome three other sons Conor, James and Jake with her ex-husband Mike Hollingsworth.

The presenter and Mike were married for 10 years before they went their separate ways in 1999.
