Now, in a new eight-part BBC docu-series, Amir says: “She’s had her second chemo.

“The doctor said with the first one she went through a lot of problems, so they’re going to reduce the chemo a bit.

“When I went over to her house she was really down and upset. It’s a tough time.

“I’ve been there every night, spending time with them trying to give my support in any way I can.

“When they had the first op and chemo I went with my dad to give him support.

“It was good to see and speak to the doctors, and see how my mum was feeling.”

In January, Amir shared a picture of the pair together and wrote: “My dear mum has been diagnosed with pancreas cancer, stage four.

“Today she’s feeling a lot better and stronger. Please keep her in your prayers.”

Pancreatic cancer is a cancer that originates in the pancreas near the stomach and is usually treated with surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
