The mum-of-two's brother, Max Halliwell, collapsed at home in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, in November.

The 54-year-old was being treated in intensive care following the fall but tragically passed away.

Police said that Max, who worked for an eco-friendly technology firm, had been taken to Watford General Hospital after being found at his home.

In a statement, a Hertfordshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: "Police were called at 9.40am on Wednesday 17 November to report the concern for welfare of a man at a residential property in Berkhamsted.

"Officers, along with the East of England Ambulance Service, attended the scene. "The man was located and taken to hospital for treatment, where he sadly later died. His death is being treated as non-suspicious and will be referred to the coroner."

The siblings were close, with Max even making an appearance on Geri's 2010 episode of Life Stories with Piers Morgan.
