COUNTRYFILE star Adam Henson and his wife Charlie have spoken about their sudden marriage after a painful cancer diagnosis.
The couple already had two children together but decided to tie the knot after a heartbreaking health battle.
Adam, 57, admitted it was a “huge shock” when doctors found out Charlie had pancreatic cancer.
The Countryfile presenter previously thought his partner had just caught a bug from an animal on his farm.
She felt ill for over three months before finally receiving the terrible news that she had a 4.5cm tumor.
Adam told The Telegraph Getting through the situation was a “nightmare”, adding: “It was a big shock. “I’m a pragmatist by nature, which probably comes from my work as a farmer.”
“I deal with facts and think about what can be done, but in this situation I was completely lost.”
Charlie said that after learning of her condition, marrying Adam became “the most important thing in the world” to her.
“It’s ridiculous, but I really wanted everyone to know how much I love Adam,” the emotional wife shared. “Most of all, I wanted him to know. It was suddenly such a big deal.”
Luckily, Charlie is currently recovering and the loving couple have both been able to return to television work.
Adam is known for appearing as a farmer on the BBC One show and Charlie is now a site manager.
