‘Forever loved’: Bishop’s husband dies

TELEVISION presenter Angela Bishop has lost her adored husband Peter Baikie after a battle with a rare cancer.

Baikie, the father of their 10-year-old daughter Amelia, passed away on Wednesday surrounded by family and friends having undergone treatment for the disease since February last year.

The 54-year-old son-in-law of former MP Bronwyn Bishop and brother to Wendy Rylance was a car fanatic, a motorbike lover and a gifted mechanic.

"His courage in fighting this disease left all that shared his journey full of immense admiration. He found his tower of strength in his wife Angela and the love of his daughter Amelia," a statement issued by the family said.

"He embraced life with all it had to offer him - but without doubt his family and friends were the highlights in his world.

"The love shown to Angela and family during his final days by Peter's circle of friends is testament to the man he was.

"He will be dearly missed but forever loved."
