Zoe Ball, “My brother Jamie & I are completely in awe of the brilliant Doctors, Nurses & support teams looking after Mum. Thank you,” she wrote.

“I’m trying to be at work on breakfast as often as I can but occasionally need to be home with my Mama. Thanks to Gaby for stepping in.”

Zoe had previously opened up about her relationship with her mother in an interview on Desert Island Discs. She discussed living with her father for the majority of her upbringing as her mother left when she was two.

Zoe Ball, “It was tough not seeing my mum for all those years, because I think it does make you question a lot of stuff as a kid,” she said.

The pair appear to have built a close relationship with Julia helping with childcare when the presenter leaves for holiday.

Mum’s a sweetheart, she mans the fort. We’re going on holiday together later this year,” she said on the show.

Zoe Ball, Paddy McGuiness, Julia Bradbury and Natalie Cassidy all shared their support on her post saying they were “sending love” to her family. BBC radio colleague Adele Roberts added, “Thinking of your amazing mum and sending so much love to you all.”
