James Nesbitt has spoken about his mum losing her battle against Altimeters. The star, 47, broke off from filming The Hobbit in new Zealand and flew to Northern Ireland after May, 79, died.

He told Sky Arts’ Living the Dream he regretted how her condition meant she missed seeing “how much more content a person I am”.

He added: “There was a crossover when she knew something was wrong. What I hate most is the memory of her being frightened.

“Now the grieving process has begun and I think about her when she was well.”
