The BBC host stayed up with Nigel throughout the night while he had “dramatic and shocking” seizures until his death.
Monty said to Cariad: “I don’t know if you’ve ever been with a person when they’ve had a seizure,” to which she replied: “No, not a seizure, no.”
He explained: “Oh, well I have and it’s really shocking. It’s really dramatic. It’s such a violent thing, you know, and you feel, as someone who’s trying to help, I sort of know what to do, but it feels inadequate.
“It’s so violent. People can break bones and things. Anyway, you had a large dog doing just that, all night. Again, and again, and again.”
