TV presenter and actor Annabel Giles dies aged 64 after brain tumour diagnosis

The British TV and radio presenter was 64-years-old

TV and radio presenter Annabel Giles has died at the age of 64 after being diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.

A statement shared to her Instagram account by her children Molly and Tedd said their 'incredible mother' died on Monday afternoon (20 November) at Martlets Hospice in Hove.

It read: “In July, Mum was diagnosed with a stage 4 Glioblastoma, a fast-growing and highly aggressive malignant brain tumour.


“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.”

It 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”

Annabel was best known for co-presenting ITV’s Posh Frocks and New Trousers, as well as appearing on the 13th season of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!


She arrived into the Australian jungle as a late arrival alongside Vincent Simone, before leaving as the first celebrity to be evicted in the public vote. Irish singer Kian Egan went on to win the series.

Since 2014, Annabel regularly guested on the Channel 5 chat show The Wright Stuff, as well as being the resident agony aunt on the Eleri Sion Show for BBC Radio Wales.

In more recent years, Annabel worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist in Brighton and London.

The radio host was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year in July and bravely underwent 'countless' treatments - something her children hailed her for in their emotional statement today.

Annabel shares her daughter Molly with ex-husband Midge Ure, the lead singer of Ultravox and founder of Band Aid and Live Aid.
