Emmerdale’s Tony Audenshaw’s opens up about ‘unfair’ death of wife
EMMERDALE’S Tony Audenshaw has previously opened up about his personal heartache over the “unfair” death of wife.
The actor, who appeared on Saturday night’s episode of Celebrity Catchphrase, sadly lost his wife Ruth to pancreatic cancer in 2017.
Speaking about her heartbreaking death, Tony previously told The Mirror: “Her death seems all the more unfair as she did not smoke, and kept fit by running.”
Recalling the moment that they were told the devastating news, Tony added: “I remember being very quiet as we walked to the hospital car park, then breaking down in the car.
“Before we worried about forgetting to put the bin out.
“Now Ruth was going to be dead within a year after a horrible illness.”
Ruth started chemotherapy in 2016 and even travelled to Germany to see if doctors could help reduce the tumour so it could be removed.
Tony told the publication six months after her death: “They told us the cancer had spread to her liver and she had multiple tumours.
“It was terminal. But Ruth was incredible.
“She said: ‘I’ve not got long left. I’m going to enjoy my life while I can’.”
