“He must not come back, under any circumstances.”

Deborah James has said an emotional goodbye to her brother Ben as he heads off on a dream holiday.

Her brother, who recently celebrated his engagement, is heading off to America.

Deborah said saying goodbye wasn’t easy, especially because she doesn’t know how long she has left.

However, she warned her brother not to cut his trip short.

Speaking to The Sun, the mum said: “He’s off on holiday to the US tomorrow. I have told him they have to go, they’ve planned the trip for ages.

She revealed, “I also told him he must not come back, under any circumstances.”

Deborah added, “He says he’ll come home.”

“It’ll be horrible saying goodbye to him. I can’t really think about it right now,” she admitted.

Deborah’s brother Ben recently proposed to his girlfriend of 11 years.

She was able to celebrate the couple’s happy news but said she is heartbroken because she won’t be there to see him get married.

“I’m sad I won’t see the wedding but it gave me an excuse to throw my last impromptu party (and I even sat at the table for a bit of it!!)”

“Luckily the rain just held off and my body kept awake for a few hours! Ashley welcome officially to a slightly mad family, but we couldn’t be happier you are here.”
