Heartbroken Russell Grant’s poignant tribute as beloved mum Jo dies in hospital

Russell Grant has shared his heartbreak with fans as his beloved mother Jo has passed away.

The Mirror’s astrologer, 69, shared a poignant message with fans on Facebook alongside a picture of his dear mum.

Russell told fans that Jo passed away in hospital whilst holding hands with her granddaughter Joanna.

“It is with a deep and heartfelt sadness that my brother Garry and I have to tell you that our beloved mother, Jo, passed over to a better world yesterday,” Russell wrote.

“Nanny Jo was with her darling grand-daughter, Joanna – Jo by name, Jo by nature: a chip-off-the-old-book – who held her nan’s hand and gently helped and guided her over to the other side yesterday afternoon.”

Sharing a sweet tribute to his “force-of-nature” mum, Russell went on: “Those who knew our mum will have been embraced by her force-of-nature that brought sunshine to the many she met.

“In the winter of her life the light she blazed for nine decades was finally extinguished by these dark times in her 93rd year.

“Mum leaves, for now, her two boys, her grand-daughter, Joanna, her sister-in-law, Elsa and her two great grandchildren, Finleigh and Jordan.”

“Till we meet again, mum,” he added, alongside a heart emoji.
