Nigel Havers' second marriage and heartbreaking death of Polly Williams

Nigel married second wife Polly in 1989 shortly after his divorce from Carolyn. Polly and Nigel were happily married for 15 years before her tragic death in 2004 from cancer. During an appearance on Loose Women back in 2017, Nigel revealed that Polly found out she had ovarian cancer after having a hysterectomy. "It was that sudden," he said. "It was a major shock as you can imagine. That's a very tough one to get."

The actor accompanied his wife to the hospital for her appointments, recalling: "The first doctor that we saw we didn't really like. His manner was a bit brusque. So we went somewhere else and we found someone who was wonderful, so that's also important."

That same year, the Coronation Street actor appeared on an episode of Piers Morgan's Life Stories, where he opened up about the sad passing of his wife. "It was a tragic thing. Of course, because she was determined not to die. She was immensely brave and fought it tooth and nail for six years."
