Marie's daughter Stacey, 30, overdosed last month on a lethal cocktail of drugs and has been left permanently brain-damaged.

Like Bobbi, Stacey is no longer in a medically-induced coma, but doctors have warned she will now remain permanently unresponsive.

Mum-of-seven Marie, 56, from Blackpool – who also has full custody of Stacey’s three-year-old son Syd – says:

“I know what Bobbi’s family must be feeling. Seeing my daughter lying motionless in hospital is devastating. She’s come off life-support and is breathing through a tube, but doctors have said she’s 99 per-cent brain-damaged.

"I visit daily and talk to her, but she's unresponsive. We’re stuck in limbo- we can't grieve for Stacey, because physically she's still here, but I've still lost the daughter I love."
