• Maddy Anholt has died
  • She was only 35 years
  • Sadly, Maddy died a year after having her daughter

As the BBC has sadly confirmed, author and charity activist Maddy Anholt (†35) passed away after battling a rare and aggressive form of brain tumor that ultimately claimed her life. She had received the tragic diagnosis just shortly after the birth of her daughter Opal last year, and had been fighting to irradicate the tumor.

The family announced the news of Maddy's death just hours after her passing via her "GoFundMe" page, revealing that she had spent her final weeks at her childhood home in Devon under hospice care. This was their statement:

Maddy still had so many more laughs in her

"It is with profound sorrow that we announce the death of Maddy Anholt, our beloved daughter, sister, twin, friend, wife and mother, who left this world on Wednesday 13th September, aged 35," the statement read. During her battle with the disease, she endured several surgeries before tragically passing away on Wednesday.

"She handled the ensuing surgery and treatment with astonishing grace and courage, accompanied every step of the way by her family and devoted husband, Ben. She spent her final weeks at her parents’ home, Sunflower House, bathed in love and calm, and with the sounds of nature all around."

They also added: "“We are overwhelmed with gratitude to the many friends who have upheld us with their love and prayers during this difficult time – as well as the countless nurses, doctors and the NHS as a whole, who treated her with unfailing dignity and compassion. In particular we would like to thank the magnificent team at Seaton Hospice at Home, who are the embodiment of empathy, professionalism and love."

Maddy Anholt was an ambassador for Women's Aid and was known for her various radio broadcasts. She also appeared in numerous sitcoms throughout the years including 'The Emily Atack Show' in 2020, the BBC Three sitcom 'Jerk' with Tim Renkow in 2019, and the show 'Sunny D' co-starring Katherine Ryan in 2016.

But she was also an author. She had four sell-out solo comedies at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Latitude Festival and the Soho Theatre and released a book last year called 'How to Leave Your Psychopath: The Essential Handbook for Escaping Toxic Relationships.'

She was also a regular guest on 'This Morning' and will be sorely missed by all of those who lover her comedy. She leaves behind a gaping hole in British entertainment...no doubt about it.
