More than 1.2million watched as businessman Simon Binner played a poignant last message to his wife Debbie from his deathbed before turning on the drip that killed him.

Many watching were left distraught as the motor neurone disease sufferer administered the life-ending drugs with a smile on his face.

Broadcaster Clare Balding tweeted she was 'sitting here sobbing' watching Mr Binner's final moments while ITV presenter Fiona Phillips said his case proved assisted suicide can be 'valid'.
