Sammy, who was 53, leaves behind actor Warwick and their two children – Annabelle, 27, and Harrison, 21.

The family were super-close, often featuring on each other’s social media in sweet posts. And one that seems particularly poignant now was posted by Annabelle in tribute to her beloved mum as the two celebrated Mother’s Day last year.
