In tribute to my daughter...

The grief is so all-consuming you can barely begin to parent the children you do have. You don't believe you will recover, but somehow you do; the trauma heals but the loss never does.

– Jason Watkins on the death of his daughter Maudie

Actor Jason Watkins won his first Bafta on Sunday night, but despite being a momentous occasion in his career Jason touchingly used his speech time to make a beautiful dedication to his daughter, Maudie who died of Sepsis when she was just two years old.

He told our Loose Women that he threw himself into his recent Bafta-winning role in a bid to help heal both himself and his family.
