Paul Daniels returns home for 'final days'

PAUL Daniels has returned to his Wargrave home to see out his final days after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, according to his son.

PAUL Daniels has returned to his Wargrave home to see out his final days after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, according to his son.

Martin Daniels said doctors had not said how much time his father has and there was "no treatment which can help him".

He said his father "knows things are not in his hands now and we are living in the knowledge every day is a bonus".

"It was devastating for all of us. The doctors said the tumour was growing rapidly and could not be cured,” he said.

He added that his father was offered radiotherapy but turned it down when he was told there was no chance it would extend his life.

The magician and entertainer was diagnosed with the tumour two weeks ago. He was initially taken to hospital after a fall at his home, where it was suspected he had suffered a stroke. However, after a scan the tumour was discovered.

He and his wife, radio presenter Debbie McGee, 57, have been inundated with messages of support from friends and well-wishers since they made the news public.

The couple, who have been married for 28 years, have lived by the River Thames in Wargrave since 1998 and the magician has performed a number of sell-out shows at the village’s biennial festival.

He is popular in the area after making dozens of appearances at community and charity events free of charge over many years.
