Sarah Beeny has revealed her father Richard has died.
The presenter, 51, took to Instagram to share an emotional tribute, where she described him as ‘wonderful and a lover of life.’
Latest blow for Sarah
Richard’s passing is just the latest blow for Sarah after her battle with breast cancer last year, and her recent revelation that her marriage to husband Graham Swift is ‘hanging on by fingernails’.
Posting a gallery of snaps with her dad, Sarah captioned the post: ‘Goodbye my wonderful, fun, supportive, lover of life, father – thank you for just being you – may you rest in peace xxxx.’
Sarah shared a slew of snaps of her architect father Richard, including one snap taken on her wedding day.
Sarah previously revealed Richard’s health struggles after he suffered a stroke six years ago.
She said she didn’t want to reveal his diagnosis to him in case he mistook her for her late mother.
She told The Telegraph: ‘He sometimes knows who I am, then sometimes he doesn’t remember. He knows that his first wife died of breast cancer.
‘He gets lots of things muddled up and my fear is that I tell him, and tell him I’m going to be fine, but he’d remember the fact that I’d got it but not that I was going to get better. He’d think I was my mother.’
Sarah underwent surgery
Sarah, who battled breast cancer last year, recently revealed she underwent surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.
She previously revealed their marriage was ‘hanging by fingernails’ after her breast cancer battle in a candid new interview.
Sarah was given the all clear in April 2023 and in June she released her documentary Sarah Beeny vs. Cancer which detailed her cancer journey including her double mastectomy.
