Gok Wan shared a heartbreaking update on Tuesday as he saw his friend for the last time following her terminal cancer diagnosis.
The TV personality, 49, uploaded a black and white photo of himself with Fanny McPhee, who is battling stage four breast cancer, and admitted his heart was ‘shattered.’
In his first post, shared to Instagram, he wrote: ‘Fanny’s last night in London. Not many words left.
‘I think we’ve said what we need to. Now we can just sit contently – that is the true beauty of friendship.’
Following up with another photo, Gok added: ‘My little heart is a tiny bit shattered today. Fanny is on her way back to OZ. We’ve had such a magical 2 months, time we never thought we’d have so thank you universe for making it happen.’

He continued: ‘I know she has to go home to be with her amazing Son and family… I’ll miss the laughs and life reckoning… Bon voyage t*** face.’
The update comes after Gok joined Michelle Visage, AJ Odudu and Charlotte Church to film an upcoming celebrity special of the new Wheel of Fortune reboot at Media City in Salford in December.
The iconic game show will return to ITV1 and ITVX in 2024 for an eight episode run, as contestants once again spin to win, with two celebrity specials set to air.
It was announced in June this year that Graham Norton would host the new Wheel of Fortune reboot.
The 60-year-old talk show star will follow the likes of Nicky Campbell, Bradley Walsh, John Leslie and Paul Hendry by fronting the returning game show, which originally aired from 1988 to 2001.
In a statement, he said: ‘I’m beyond excited to be bringing such an iconic American show to a new British audience.
‘My first ever TV job was a game show on ITV so this feels like coming full circle. You might even call it a wheel!’
As ever, the programme will be focused on a giant carnival wheel with contestants hoping to land some major cash prizes.

As teased by ITV, the show is a game of skill and luck, and each spin of the famous wheel will settle on a certain cash amount before the player chooses a letter to try and solve a puzzle.
However, it’s a double edged sword as the wheel can also cause contestants to go ‘bankrupt’ or ‘lose a turn’.
Katie Rawcliffe – head of entertainment commissioning at ITV – added: ‘We are thrilled to have the much-loved Graham Norton bringing this iconic game show to our viewers.
‘Anything can happen on the spin of a wheel, it is going to be so much fun.’
