The British talent agent who represented numerous celebrities has died in a Cancun hospital after a particularly brutal COVID fight.

Cancer survivor Terry Mills, 38, contracted the coronavirus during a business trip to Cancun, according to the Daily Mail.

Mills was placed into a medically induced coma after the virus led to pneumonia, the report said.

“EastEnders” star and close friend Max Bowden announced Terry’s death on Instagram, saying: “I will love you until my last breath.”

A fundraising page had raised the equivalent of over US$61,000 to meet soaring hospital bills. His insurance covered only the first 24 hours of care, the GoFundMe page said.

It is not clear when Mills had traveled to Mexico, which has counted more than 1.7 million COVID-19 cases and more than 150,000 deaths.
