Elaine has been left with a huge family, with nine siblings in total. When her mum was first diagnosed, Elaine opened up about how her family were all pitching in to help out with her care.

She told the RTÉ Guide: "She is a strong woman. We’re all doing our shift work to make sure she is OK. I think she is sick of the sight of us."

She also spoke to RSVP earlier this year, giving an update on her mum's situation, adding that she and her siblings were taking turns spending the night with her in Cork.

Elaine said: "At least I have my turn when I am caring for her. I think if you are healthy and nothing awful has happened to the health of your loved ones, everything else isn’t a problem really."
