Episode notes

In the first instalment of Grief Kind, Clover Stroud speaks to BAFTA-winning actress and television presenter Lisa Riley about her mum, Cath, who died in Lisa’s arms from pancreatic cancer.

Amongst anecdotes of lemon curd and Strictly Come Dancing, Lisa reveals how she coped with the death of her mum – who she describes as “the oxygen of the room” - but still misses her daily.

When it comes to grief, Lisa questions whether time is a healer and shares her insight into the best thing a friend can do to help a loved one through a bereavement.
