Debbie McGee has paid tribute to her husband Paul Daniels, 12 months after his death

Debbie McGee has paid tribute to husband Paul Daniels - one year after his death.

The 58-year-old television performer - who married the magician in 1988 - took to her Twitter account on Friday (17.03.17) to mark the first anniversary of Paul's passing as she gushed about his talent and the "happy years" they spent together.

Alongside a photograph of her beloved spouse, she wrote: "A year today since this smiling face vanished from us. I was SO lucky to have so many happy years with Paul who made me laugh every day, (sic)" followed by a heart emoji.

She then recalled a time in 2015 - a year before his death - in Remini, Italy, performing magic tricks to an audience while they waited in line for a convention.

She said: "Paul was always happy entertaining whether on stage or off. Waiting to see a show FISM magic convention Rimini Italy 2015 No one was bored."

Paul tragically passed away at the age of 77 from a brain tumour - something he only found out at four weeks before his death - and, although he was initially being cared for in hospital, Debbie was determined to get him home so he could spend his final days in comfort and around his beloved friends and family.

She previously said: "The last two weeks he was at home. We had one fantastic week. And my big thing was that I had to get him home. The torture was that if he stayed in hospital and I never got him back to the house - I couldn't bear the thought that he'd never come home. So once I knew I could get him home then I just thought, 'Well, whatever time we have left ... this has got to count.' "
