On April 16, 2021, Lewis confirmed the tragic news on social media.

“I am heartbroken to announce that the beautiful and powerful woman who is Helen McCrory has passed away peacefully at home after a heroic battle with cancer, surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family,” the actor wrote.

“She died as she lived. Fearless.

“God we loved her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She shone so bright.

“Now, little one, get airborne and thank you.”

The couple appeared on Good Morning Britain in March 2021 to discuss their latest charity venture with the Prince’s Trust, where they are both ambassadors.

They also helped feed frontline healthcare workers during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking of her charity work, Helen said: “Since we launched the campaign we have had thank you messages for NHS workers from people across the country which we have shared with them.

“For those who work with infectious diseases, these messages of kindness and gratitude are the safest hug you can give an ITU worker right now. It’s important that they know they’re not alone, when they’re done we’re thinking of them.”
