"In July, Mum was diagnosed with a stage 4 Glioblastoma, a fast-growing and highly aggressive malignant brain tumour," the post read.

"In the four months that followed, she displayed remarkable resilience and strength, despite undergoing brain surgery and countless radiotherapies.

"In her final weeks, she was passionate about raising awareness for Glioblastoma, embodying her lifelong commitment to helping others."

The statement - written by her two children - continued: "Mum was truly one of a kind, an enigma to those privileged to share her life.

"True to her nature, she kept spirits high and maintained her quick wit until the very end. Her humour and laughter will leave us inspired to live life to the fullest, just as she always did.

"We thank you for your love and support and kindly request that you respect our privacy at this challenging time.

"In lieu of flowers or other gifts, we would be grateful for donations to Martlets Hospice, whose exceptional care was a great source of comfort throughout this journey. With heartfelt thanks, Molly & Tedd x".

Despite being famed for co-presenting ITV’s Posh Frocks and New Trousers, Giles has worked as a worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist in Brighton and London in recent years.

And it was her work as a counsellor that prompted her last ever Facebook post, which fans have stumbled upon since her death.

Giles had posed for a picture of her counselling her cat just weeks before her passing, in what is now being described as a 'heartbreaking' yet witty post.

Even at the end, the former Wright Show guest star was making people laugh, with the snap showing her appearing to pose a question at the floral sofa opposite - above which two cat ears just poke out.

She poked fun at her profession by sharing the joke with her family and friends on Facebook on November 1, just 20 days before she died.

One pal teased in the comments: "Tell me about your kitten hood."

Another jibed: "Yes, I think you may be catatonic."
