She added: “He is always in my thoughts - I miss him enormously as he was such a huge part of my life for so many years.

'It was so different at Christmas without Sean being there with me.

'All my children were here, however, and they helped me greatly as well as my friends who have always been there when I need them."

Sir Sean was cremated on the Bahamian island of New Providence.
