Bread icon Jean Bohts last photo taken with husband before she died aged 91

One of the last public photos of Bread actress Jean Boht was taken with her beloved late husband Carl Davis.

In the snaps – taken on March 10 2020 – Boht and Davis can be seen on a rare outing in their hometown of Windsor.

Family members confirmed that the 91-year-old actress had died on Tuesday, just one month after losing her husband, Carl Davis.

“It is with overwhelming sadness that we must announce that Jean Boht passed away yesterday, Tuesday September 12,” a family statement read.

“Jean had been battling vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease with the indefatigable spirit for which she was both beloved and renowned.”

The statement ends with: “She was a resident at Denville Hall, the home for members of the theatrical profession.”

In the tragic last images, Jean could be seen holding hands with her late husband as they enjoyed a walk in the town centre.

Jean wore a yellow jumper with a black woollen jacket, along with a black skirt and matching shoes.

The Bread actress was also spotted a few years earlier on a rare walk with her pet pooch. 

Jean was seen pushing her canine in a red stroller as she made her way into Windsor town centre. The sausage dog looked delighted as it poked its head from the pram.
