James Jordan devastated as 'hero' dad dies after terminal cancer diagnosis


JAMES Jordan has been left devastated today following the death of his "hero" dad after his terminal cancer diagnosis.

The 42-year-old star was inundated with support from fans as he updated them on Twitter this morning.

He wrote: "My dad became an angel at 8.05am. I will forever miss him.

"My dad will always be my HERO. RIP Daddy."

Earlier this month, James and his wife Ola broke down in tears on Loose Women as they revealed that his dad Allan was back in hospital.

James wept as he shared: "Last year my dad got diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour. He’s currently back in hospital, really, really not very well."

He later added: "It's been the most horrendous time in our lives, for us it is frustrating.

"I would have loved not to be in lockdown and been taking my dad to amazing places and spending some real quality time with him.

He trailed off as he said: "But my dad is the strongest person I've ever met…"

Seeing her husband's pain Ola, 38, also cried, as she added: "It's really difficult because obviously we can't go and see him."

The couple credited their baby daughter Ella, who recently celebrated her first birthday, for bringing joy into their lives amid the sadness.

Allan's health first began to deteriorate around the time his granddaughter was born.

He suffered multiple strokes and was diagnosed with coronavirus last year, leaving James desperate for answers.

His biggest fear was then realised when it was eventually revealed that Allan had been misdiagnosed, and only had months left to live due to an "aggressive" terminal cancer.

James begged fans for help finding the best possible surgeon at the time, writing: "I want to know I’ve done everything possible before I can accept it."
