Gary Burgess died peacefully in his sleep in Jersey Hospice yesterday. The ITV star documented his lengthy journey with cancer, after receiving a terminal diagnosis last year.

You did a lot of good, Gary. A lot of of goo

Alan Burgess

The 46-year-old had previously been told tumours in his lungs were inoperable.

Gary’s final message to fans has now been released by the broadcaster following his death.

He wrote: “”I’ve had the best life. I’ve had the luckiest life. I met my soul mate and the love of my life who went on to become my husband.

“I got to work with some of the most amazing people in newsrooms and studios doing the job I absolutely adore.

“And I’ve been able to share my own relatively short time on this planet surrounded by friends and loved ones who have enriched my life in ways they may never truly understand.

Gary continued: “My greatest sadness is the prospect of leaving all of that and all of them behind.

“The thought of doing that to Alan is unfathomable to process, but I also know the very people who’ve shown me love and support will now wrap up those feelings around him in the coming days.”

He went on: “It’s time for me to hand over my microphone and keyboard for others to do the talking about me, so let my final words simply be ‘thank you’.

“Every person in my life has, in their own way, helped me live my best life. That’ll do.”
