"He developed sepsis and was in intensive care. I'm heartbroken to have lost him.
"It's devastating that's he's gone."
It's been going on for a while. They were just jealous of Derek and wanted his status.
It comes after Gwen hit out at the mediums, who she refused to name, in a Facebook tribute to her beloved husband of 24 years.
Speaking after Derek died in intensive care last night, she fumed: “To the vile couple who hounded him for responses to their ridiculous campaign whilst he was in Intensive Care in a coma, I hope you have the decency to hang your heads in shame.
"I have things to deal with now but I won’t forget nor will I forgive what you have done!"
REALITY STAR TRAGEDY
Gwen said that reality star Derek, who shot to fame on Most Haunted, ignored the trolls as he bravely fought illness from hospital bed.
She revealed: “Derek didn't let it bother him – he just ignored it.
"We didn't report them to the police as you would just spend all your time in a police station.
He developed sepsis and was in intensive care. I'm heartbroken to have lost him. It's devastating that's he's gone.
"But I'm upset about it, especially as they were sending messages while he was in intensive care.
"I know they probably didn't know he was so ill but they should be ashamed of themselves."
Derek, born in Bootle, Merseyside, shot to fame on cult show Most Haunted and later went on to present Derek Acorah's Ghost Towns.
He also featured on Michael Jackson: The Search for His Spirit and attempted to reach out to the popstar's ghost.
