Brave Davina opened up about her death on the programme

Davina McCall broke down on This Morning as she opened up about her sister’s death.

The former Big Brother presenter said that it’s events like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie splitting up that makes her miss her sister the most.

Talking to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, she said: ‘She was unbelievable. When Brad and Angelina split up, she would’ve been the first person I called. She loved things like that.

‘But I called her best friend and we both talked about the fact we both wanted to call her on that day, and we both talked about her bravery in dying.

‘There was something about her acceptance of death, her willingness to say, “I know this is going to happen and I’m not going to freak out and fight it the whole way and not make you all really upset with your fear.”

‘I know she was doing it for us, she was so brave. I’d see her pulling it out of the bag for her friends when she was absolutely exhausted to make them feel better.’

Davina McCall’s sister, Caroline Baday, sadly passed away from cancer in 2012.

The mum-of-three continued: ‘She’d wrapped up little gifts of her clothes and her jewellery before she died, and gifted them to people.

‘She didn’t have much, she was terrible with money and finances, but she gave away everything she owned before she died.’
