Heather first appeared on This Morning in June where she told Alison: "I got diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019, I then got the all clear just before my 40th birthday.

"I thought things were getting back to normal, I then got told I had brain mets, so now I am getting myself organised.

"I have been told I’ve got three months to live, so I am going to have a ‘wake me up before I go, go’ party before my passing."

During the Dosh On Your Doorstep competition, Heather won £1,000 and was donated a further £1,000 by the ITV team, and she revealed in August that she had spent her prize money on a Wake Before I Go Go party.

Talking to Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes in August, she said: "It went fantastic, everyone turned up in wigs, it was nice to see people I haven't seen for quite a long time and then trying to find out who's under that wig. That was really really nice."

Heather added: "It was everything all mixed up, it was emotional, it was happy, it was nice to see work friends I haven't seen for a while. It was really nice. Yesterday I spent the whole day in bed."

The competition winner also revealed at the time that she had been ticking things off her bucket list, which included feeding giraffes.
