Talking about how she was feeling, Jane said: “I’m a lot better than when I was on Loose Women. I can talk about him now and just feel great that I had that amazing time with him. And it’s funny, we should talk about retiring because he retired at 59. And said, I promise you when you get to this age, you’ll see a difference. And I have. So we had lots of plans. And I think that’s part of grief as well is that you go through the normal grief and the terrible, terrible time and then you grieve the life that you thought you were gonna have.
“So when he died, he took our future. So I think that is, I’ve got to have a different life now. And that’s taken a bit of adjusting to, but I’ll get there. Because that’s what do, we get there.”
She added: “My life has changed a lot. But by God, I’m gonna enjoy every minute of it now. Because that’s what we’re supposed to do. I don’t want to be sad, I don’t want to be miserable. And Ed would have hated if I was, and my mother definitely would have hated it. So if there is this something out there, where they are watching us, I want them to think I’m okay. I’m okay. And that’s because of you.”
Talking about her friend Sue moving in with her, she said: “You know, when you’re on your own, there’s, there’s always that the wee small hours in the morning where everything seems a lot worse than it actually is. And if I wake up and I’m in a bad way, I know that Sue’s just down the hall a bit. And I can get up and say can you have a cup of tea with me? She’ll probably kill me if I do that. But you know, sometimes it’s just knowing that someone else in the house and we’ve both got that now.”
She added: “Now I’m getting to 60. The difference now in my tired level is quite quite big. So I’m just gonna put my feet up and watch Netflix like everybody else.”
