Do they get the bread?’ My wife had no idea why I was asking this stuff. I started scheming.“If I got somebody to knock me off, death by misadventure, [my kids] would get the insurance.

I had four kids. I wanted them to have a life. It was a hard moment in time. I literally thought of self-annihilation so they could survive.

That’s how low I was.”He added: “That was the first inkling that there was a way out, but I wouldn’t be here to be available to my kids.

What are the answers here?'" Gabby, who appears on Pointless on Friday, 17 May, further explained how their neurologist proved to be an amazing source of guidance, she said: "His neurologist was brilliant, he's a brilliant communicator and told us what the options were and I was like, (to Kenny) 'We've just to get a plan together, you need to know what you're doing and then we will keep being positive about it.'" Once they had adjusted to the initial shock, they treated the ordeal as a project: "That's what we did really, once we got over the initial shock, we just really kind of focused on it as a project we had to deal with and it's a b****y awful operation." Despite the gut-wrenching diagnosis, Gabby showed remarkable resilience, revealing that deep down, she was certain she "wasn't going to lose her husband, who is also the father of her two children. As she shared stories about how this formidable challenge had actually strengthened their bond, with Kenny proving to be an incredible "rock" throughout the journey, the normally composed sportscaster was moved to tears.
