‘But there was a year or so when I think I saw her two weeks in one year. It’s very difficult with careers like that. This business is tough. Working 14 hours a day, both of you, and the days went by.’

‘He decided to call her for the first time on her birthday in February before she died,’ said a source.

‘They spoke for the first time in 23 years.

‘They had a 40-minute phone conversation about her life, and the cancer and it was such a lovely moment for the two of them. I guess it was a very good conversation. They joked, and they got a little bit emotional.’

The source added: ‘I think it was good given the current situation [for] closure, otherwise they never would’ve spoken again. I think he always wanted to talk to her again, but he was just afraid to speak to her before.’
