Jimmy: My mum doesn't know me

Mother's Day is tinged with sadness today for Ulster actor Jimmy Nesbitt — his sick mum no longer instantly recognises him as she loses her battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

In a frank and emotional interview, the Bloody Sunday star told of his heartbreak at seeing his mother May deteriorate to the extent that she does not know him now when he visits.

Jimmy, 45, said: “I went to see her and she didn’t know me — it’s been very difficult.”
