LOOSE Women viewers were in tears today after Line Of Duty star Jason Watkins revealed the heartbreaking moment he found his adorable daughter dead from sepsis.
The 53-year-old, who is also in comedies Trolled and W1A, explained how Maude was sent home from hospital with antibiotics on New Year’s Eve – before dying in the night.
He said: “In the morning our other daughter, who shared a room at the time, came in in the morning and said: ‘I can’t wake Maude.’
“She had died on the morning of New Year. It’s almost Dickensian that in modern medical practise that could happen.
“It’s had a cataclysmic effect on our family. The first time sepsis was mentioned with six months later in the inquest.”
He added: “What sepsis does is lurks underneath presenting symptoms. With Maude that was breathing difficulties and a chest infection.”
