Fiona Phillips Tuesday night heartbreakingly revealed her shock Alzheimer’s diagnosis aged 62.

Originally the former GMTV host put her ‘anxiety, ‘confusion and ‘brain fog’ down to the menopause and underwent hormone replacement therapy.

But because her brain fog persisted, she visited more specialists and eventually her diagnosis was confirmed.

Fiona originally saw the onset of ‘crippling anxiety’, ‘confusion’ and ‘brain fog’ at the end of 2021. She saw a menopause specialist and underwent hormone replacement therapy.

Neurological tests were given to the participants to judge their cognitive state and their potential risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

The results, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, suggested those who were at a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s were also more willing to hand out money to the person they had never met.

Dr Duke Han, a neuropsychology professor at USC who led the research, said: ‘Trouble handling money is thought to be one of the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease, and this finding supports that notion.’
