Sky Sports presenter Simon Thomas has revealed that he has returned to the room he shared with his late wife.

The grieving dad said he has not been back into the room since the night she died in November last year.

He posted a heart-breaking image on social media on Sunday after he returned from an Easter holiday with his son.

He wrote: "Back home and for the first time since the night she left us, I'm going back in our room."

The emotional image of the room they shared moved a lot of followers to send messages of support and warmth.

Thomas’s wife Gemma died in November, three days after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.

The former Blue Peter presenter told This Morning presenters Phil and Holly how quickly the illness had materialised.

"She had headaches for a few weeks,” he said.

“I had been off work with anxiety and depression that literally came out of nowhere. I did say a few times to her, ‘You know, this headache has been going on for a while’.

“We ended up having a joint appointment, which was mainly about getting more medication for my depression.

“She came in with me and I said, ‘You know, she’s had this headache for ages, are you worried?’. The doctor said, ‘I think a lot of it’ – and I completely understand why he said this – ‘a lot of this is down to the fact she is stressed… about you’.”

He said that by the following Friday, “she was really quite bad” and that “for her to be in bed was unusual”.

After another visit to the doctor, with “fluey” symptoms, she spent the rest of the weekend in bed, and was admitted to hospital on the Monday.

Thomas said: “On the Monday night at the Royal Berkshire (Hospital)… I fainted. We knew it was a blood cancer of some sort, it’s a leukaemia of some sort… we thought we are probably OK, people get better from this.

“It all cartwheeled quite quickly.”

His wife was given a 50/50 chance of survival and underwent chemotherapy, but during the night, Thomas said she “became more and more confused”.

“I put her back into bed at about 4.30. That was the last time I spoke to her.”

He added: “I thought she was going to sleep but as I found out she was falling unconscious and I never had the chance to even say goodbye.”

Acute myeloid leukaemia is a type of blood cancer that affects the bone marrow.
