Esther Rantzens’ Health Update

The Childline founder, 83, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer last year, and has since revealed she has joined the assisted-dying clinic Dignitas in Switzerland

She has now told how she would love to enjoy some caviar and drink champagne as a final meal.

Dame Esther added that despite it making her feel sick in the past as she is allergic to champagne, she would love to consume both as there would be no worry over the consequences. 

Revealing Her Dream Final Supper

She said on Monday: ‘I’d like to fly off to Zurich with my nearest and dearest. Have a fantastic dinner the night before. 

‘I’d love caviar, if possible, and the fact that it doesn’t always agree with me doesn’t matter, does it? 

‘I could even have champagne, which I’m deeply allergic to. Then the next day, go to this rather unappealing place where they do it.’ 

She Said More

Sharing more details of her final plans, she continued: ‘Listen to a favourite piece of music, say goodbye to everybody. Tell them to cheer up. 

‘I’m meeting my late husband, my departed dog and my mother at the pearly gates. Hold up my hand for an injection or open my mouth for a rather disgusting medication.’

‘I’ve got an amazing family and a group of friends and colleagues. So I’d like to say goodbye fairly gracefully, as much as I can muster, and then go, that’s what I’d like.’
