The cancer research charity was set up following the death of Marie Keating, Ronan’s mother, in 1998 by the Keating family.

Taking to Instagram, Storm posted a photo of her husband in the city’s sunshine yesterday evening, with the caption, “Paris, sunshine, and a quick snack.”

She said of the honour: "I am honoured to be this year’s recipient of the Global Gift Gala Philanthropist Award. I’m proud of where I grew up but I’m only too aware of the challenges that young people face. 

"I want to give back and help young people who feel like they’ll never achieve anything reach their dreams and live a happy life."
