Jane McDonald bursts into tears as Caribbean travel show takes emotional turn

JANE McDonald was overcome with emotion during a Caribbean wedding one year after losing her fiancé.

The 58-year-old singer and former Loose Women star was left heartbroken when her fiancé Eddie Rothe passed away last April after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

On a recent episode of Channel 5's Holidaying with Jane McDonald: The Caribbean, the singer was invited to attend the wedding of a couple on the island of St Lucia.

"[I have been] asked to take part in the ceremony so I really need to hold it together," she said to the camera.

But the star was too overcome with emotion during the ceremony and began to well up.

"I'm off already, I am useless," she said wiping away tears.

"I never go to weddings because I am always crying." 

She then spoke about her own Caribbean wedding to her former marriage, Henrik Brixen in 1998 but was divorced by 2002.

"I am a bit of a romantic and nosy because I got married in the Caribbean, the wedding was lovely, did not work out but aye."

Jane then explained to viewers how St Lucia was a great destination wedding location, it was also a great place for singles.

"A lot of you know that my life has changed now," she started.

"I'm single, and I chose this place because I didn't want to be on a romantic island, on my own, looking at couples everywhere.

"So this place is very open to singles coming here as well as couples… it's really up to you if you have a quiet holiday or a full active holiday."

Jane had dated drummer Eddie since 2008 but was introduced to him twenty years before.

She first met The Searchers star in 1980 and the pair briefly dated before going their separate ways.

Jane and Eddie’s short-lived relationship went full circle after a chance meeting at the ITV studios in 2008.

She was on Loose Women at the time, while Eddie was a guest on This Morning.

In her first interview after his death, Jane said: "If we know anything about what has happened in this past year, it's that life is too short.

"This has taught me that life is for living and I will live it even more when we are allowed out again."

She continued: "We all think, 'I'd better not spend that,' but I tell you something, I'm going to spend a lot and I'm going to have the best time because you just don't know when you're going to be able to do it again."

In a statement announcing Eddie's death, Jane thanked the NHS and the hospice which cared for him in his final days.

Jane wrote online: “It is with immense sadness that we share the news that Jane’s beloved life partner, Ed, passed away on Friday 26th March.
