Mr Motivator shared his heartbeat after his granddaughter died at the age of 12.

Hadassah fought meningitis for five days before her tragic death in the early hours of this morning.

The TV Fitness Guru – real name Derrick Evans – shared an emotional message as he asked people to appreciate their loved ones every day.

He said in a statement to PA: “It is not meant to happen. The life cycle dictates that parents and grandparents go first.

“You should not bury your child or your grandchild. We must continue to fight no matter what.”

Derrick, 69, added: “I want to remind everyone every day to tell your loved ones how much you love them.”

The star, who rose to fame in the early 90s by running a workout routine in his colorful spandex on GMTV, is believed to have had a very close relationship with his granddaughter.

Hadassah was the daughter of Derrick’s eldest daughter Caroline Evans Charles.

The little one was one of four.

It is reported that Derrick’s wife Sandra flew to Antigua to be with the family and that he pursued her there as soon as possible.

Derrick was awarded an MBE last year as part of the acclaimed Queen’s Birthday Honors list.

He was honored for his services for health and fitness after helping people stay fit by blocking with his online home exercise routines.

Derrick made his big TV comeback in 2019 for a BBC Fitness special.

Asked if he has changed his style since his heyday, he said: “Of course – look at how people make themselves stupid or unnecessarily close to each other.

“Where’s feelgood TV?”

He continued: “There is a role for this kind of attitude on TV instead of what we see every day, that is the screaming and the screaming that is blatantly pressed in front of your face. A quality must come back.

“All too often, what we get is all the bad stuff, all the bad stuff.

“We laugh about the bad things – we laugh about the people who have problems instead of saying, ‘Let me listen to how they behave. Let me see what they have to do to change their lives.

“Feelgood TV needs to come back. We need to highlight the people who make us feel good.”
