The 77-year-old TV star was left heartbroken in 2004 when Caron Keating lost her battle with cancer but, although she's no longer around, she knows that when she finds a single, white, feather, that her daughter is trying to send her a message from beyond.

Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Tuesday (19.09.17), Gloria said: "I believe in angels. My daughter Caron used to say 'we'll ask the parking angel to find us a space' if we were trying to find a parking space.

"I would say 'don't be so stupid', but we would always find a spot. Gradually she did some documentaries and in the end, you know that isolated white feather you find, say in a technical area like this where there are no feather pillows, she always used to say 'that's an angel's calling card' but now of course, I believe it is Caron's calling card.

"But the bottom line of it is, I don't care if anybody doesn't believe in angels. I want to believe it and therefore it's that feeling. It's the comfort of it."

The panel discussed the idea of guardian angels with The Angel Whisperer Kyle Gray who appeared on the show and claimed everyone has someone looking after them.

Caron was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997 and after various conventional and alternative treatments, she died at the age of 41 at her mother's house in Kent.
