Devastated: The wife of comedy legend Eddie Large has revealed her husband’s final words before he tragically lost his battle with coronaviris COVID-19 

Speaking to Monday’s edition of Good Morning Britain, she admitted she was kept apart from her husband for the last two weeks of his life due to the highly infectious nature of the disease, meaning their final words were spoken over the phone. 

She said: ‘I wanted to speak to him longer, he said darling “I have to go” , I said “I’ll speak to you in the morning”… and then we got the call at 4 in the morning to say he’d passed away. 

‘I never thought it would end like this. I wish I could have been with him, we’re trying to get a funeral together and still wont be able to see him. There’s so much love out there, we’ve had so much support.’ Tragic:

Eddie had originally been admitted to hospital after suffering a heart attack at home, but after contracting coronavirus while in medical care his loved ones were advised to stay away.  

Patsy added: ‘It’s been terrible. I knew our time was limited, I knew he was very ill. We had two weeks before when he was ill, before they kicked us out. We stayed every single day with him and then lockdown came and we couldn’t go in, it was heart-breaking. 

‘I spoke to him on phone every day, sometimes twice a day. Then he got this virus, heart-breaking, we couldn’t be with him.’
