Their statement read: “In July Mum was diagnosed with stage 4 Glioblastoma, a fast growing and very aggressive malignant brain tumour.
“In the four months that followed, she showed remarkable resilience and strength, despite undergoing brain surgery and countless radiation treatments.
“In her final weeks, she was passionate about raising awareness of glioblastoma and embodied her lifelong commitment to helping others.”
They also described their mother as “an enigma to those privileged to share her life” – adding: “As was her nature, she kept her spirits high and retained her quick wit to the end.
“Her humor and laughter will leave us inspired to live life to the fullest, just as she always did.”
Giles appeared on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2013, but became the first contestant to leave the jungle.
