Emmerdale actor Tony Audenshaw has told of the pain of losing his wife to cancer in a tragedy which echoed his soap storyline.

Audenshaw’s Emmerdale alter-ego, cafe owner Bob Hope, helped his on-screen wife Brenda fight a brain tumour in 2013.

The actor told the Daily Mirror how, away from the cameras, his family’s life turned upside down when his wife Ruth was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two years ago.

The cancer spread to her liver and the cognitive behaviour therapist died in April this year, aged 43.

Audenshaw, 53, told the newspaper that he wanted to talk about his wife’s illness to raise awareness of the disease, as well as charities like Pancreatic Cancer UK.

“I remember being very quiet as we walked to the hospital car park, then breaking down in the car,” he said.

“Before, we worried about forgetting to put the bin out. Now Ruth was going to be dead within a year after a horrible illness.”

The father-of-two said: “She knew it was too late for her, but she wanted to help others. Two weeks before she died she had some of her cells harvested to be used in research trials. They might be pivotal in some kind of breakthrough. I have to hope so.

“That’s what Ruth was all about. She was a brilliant person. She was so brave.”

Aretha Franklin's friends deny death speculation .
Aretha Franklin's loved ones have urged fans to ignore false reports of the soul legend's death. Former Access Hollywood host Shaun Robinson took to Twitter on Tuesday (21Nov17) to pass on a message from the veteran singer's loved ones, after unconfirmed rumours surfaced online suggesting Aretha had passed away, turning the 75-year-old into a trending topic on the micro-blogging site. "Good Morning, Everyone," Robinson tweeted. "I just spoke to one of Ms. Franklin's family friends in my hometown of Detroit. They spoke to Aretha moments ago and asked me to tell you please don't believe this news that was trending. Have a good day." Franklin previously battled a bout of ill health in 2010, when she secretly underwent surgery to remove a tumour, but her efforts to keep the news private prompted premature death reports in 2011, following claims she had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. "I don't know where 'pancreatic cancer' came from," she subsequently told Robinson. "I was sitting there reading the newspaper and it was saying someone in my family said that. No one in my family ever said that to anybody." The latest false reports about the Respect hitmaker's condition emerge months after Aretha announced her retirement as a performer. "I must tell you, I am retiring this year," she said in February (17). "This will be my last year I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it." The star has since revealed plans to return to her childhood home of Detroit, Michigan in her retirement and open a nightclub called Aretha's.
