Samantha was struck down by sepsis back in 2019. Warwick exclusively told The Sun that her health dramatically declined ahead of a family caravan holiday. She’d put it down to over-exerting herself while preparing for the trip, but when her symptoms went from itchiness and exhaustion to being unable to stand, Warwick called an out-of-hours doctor. “By now, Sam was feeling absolutely terrible,” Warwick recalled. “She was becoming drowsy, weak and hadn’t been to the toilet in over 24 hours. “Fortunately for us, our doctor recognised Sam’s symptoms and told us to head to A&E immediately with a suspected case of sepsis.” The infection causes the body’s immune system to go into overdrive and attack tissues and organs, which can be lethal and lead to amputations. In March 2024, it was announced that Samantha had passed away at the age of 53. Warwick released a statement in tribute to his late wife. He said, “Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives as a family. I miss her hugs. “She was a unique character, always seeing the sunny side of life she had a wicked sense of humour and always laughed at my bad jokes,” he continued.
