    Rob Delaney has drawn on his grief after losing his two-and-a-half-year-old son Henry to a brain tumour in 2018.

    The comedian-come-actor, 44, said that he was in ‘an incredible amount of pain’ while filming scenes for series three and four of his Channel 4 sitcom Catastrophe.

    He detailed to The Guardian how the first two series were created when his family was ‘alive and healthy’, whereas series three took place post Henry’s cancer diagnosis – and post a massive brain surgery that ‘crippled him.’

    Series four of the Emmy Award winning show was filmed after Henry’s death. 

    ‘I was in an incredible amount of pain, there was a lot of anger, there was a lot of hostility in my heart and mind during the last two seasons – and that absolutely went into the show,’ The Hobbs And Shaw star told the publication. 

    Rob co-wrote and co-starred in the comedy with Sharon Horgan and the actor believed that his emotions made the show ‘truer and better.’

    The Deadpool actor also spoke of how he and wife Leah, who have had four sons together, do all they can to raise money raise money for children and families with life-limiting illnesses.

    He insisted: ‘My family’s grief isn’t a commodity to fill airtime or space – it’s more precious and when used consciously can really help people.’

    Rob’s latest venture sees him star in Christmas film Home Sweet Home Alone.

    The Boston native admitted that when first learning there was going to be a sixth instalment of the Home Alone franchise, he didn’t deem it necessary. 

    However reading the script changed his mind and he recalled how he was ‘immediately won over’, dubbing the work ‘gorgeous and hilarious.’

    On a light-hearted turn during the interview, Rob, a keen tweeter, joked how he likes to use the site to pretend his wife is having an affair with her karate teacher and he is oblivious. 

    ‘If she is having an affair with any kind of trainer or person more athletic than myself, she’s doing a good job hiding it!’ he teased.
