Pierce adopted Chris and his sister Charlotte – Cassandra’s children – following the death of their father Dermot in1986.

Cassandra was 43 when she passed away from ovarian cancer

Tragically, both Cassandra and Charlotte lost their lives to ovarian cancer; Cassandra was 43 when she passed away in 1991 while Charlotte died from the same disease at the age of 41 on 28 June 2013.

This month will see the ninth anniversary of Charlotte's death – and Pierce will no doubt spend some time in quiet reflection remembering his beloved daughter.

In September 2015, Pierce bravely opened up about his heartbreak as he took centre stage at the Stand Up To Cancer telecast.

Daughter Charlotte lost her life to the same disease

"To watch someone you love have his or her life eaten away bit by bit by this insidious disease, that part of your sorrow becomes an indelible part of your psyche," he said. "I held the generous, strong beautiful hand of my first wife Cassie as ovarian cancer took her life too soon.

"Just last year, I held the hand of my funny, wonderful daughter Charlotte, before she too died from this wretched inherited disease."
