Britain’s Got Talent finalist Tina Humphrey has died aged 45 after battle with cancer
Britain’s Got Talent star Tina Humprey has died at the age of 45 after a battle with cancer.
The BGT contestant came fourth with her dancing dog Chandi after reaching the final live shows in 2012.
The former music teacher died May 12 after a year of fighting metastasised malanoma, a very aggressive cancer.
Her husband Steve told the Shropshire Star : “I am devastated that she is gone, but I’m happy that she is no longer suffering and is at peace.”
He continued: “I miss her so much and find it hard to believe that the shattered pieces of my heart will ever begin to heal, but I know they will because she lives on in me and always will.
“I love her so much. She was, and is, my person.”
Tina and her border collie were favourites on the ITV programme and Tina had talked on the show about what it was like to perform alongside her beloved pup: “Chandi isn’t distracted by the lights or the audience when on stage because she knows I wouldn’t take her anywhere where anything bad could happen.
“She watches me and is totally focused on me. Chandi completely trusts me and I trust her.”
Tina’s funeral was held at Shrewsbury Crematorium on Monday (May 23) and the service was attended by all her closest friends and family. Rather than flowers, Tina asked that anybody interested donate money to Hilbrae Kennels.
