“Lovely memories from first working on 10 years younger together, our coffee catchups in town before you checked my teeth for my toffee intake and of course, the holiday we took to Portugal where you sweetly checked how much honey my girls put on their porridge each morning, before they mistakenly pulled up the villa owners’ prized orchids to make us ‘perfume’ to gift you as a present.
“All memories I’ll never forget. RIP sister.”
Uchenna died from a subarachnoid haemorrhage after collapsing at her home in September.
Her long-term personal assistant Mars Webb previously said the “healthy” mother-of-one’s death came “totally out of the blue” as she had no apparent health issues.
