TV presenter Fiona Phillips who co-hosted the ITV programme GMTV for a decade, has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's at the age of 62.
Fiona is quoted as saying "all over the country there are people of all different ages whose lives are being affected by it – it’s heartbreaking. I just hope I can help find a cure which might make things better for others in the future.”
Fiona, who has 2 children, Nat, 24, and Mackenzie, 21, and is married to This Morning editor Martin Frizell, is remaining very positive, commenting "I’m still here, getting out and about, meeting friends for coffee, going for dinner with Martin and walking every day.”
