On Tuesday’s episode of Good Morning Britain (26 October), Ross said: “One of our children isn’t well... it’s fibromyalgia which is quite debilitating.
“She’s back home with us and we’re looking after her. She’s upstairs and I thought, ‘I can’t in good conscience have a big loud fun party downstairs and one of my kids is locked in a room upstairs.’ It would be like something out of a horror novel.”
Ross’s annual Halloween bash usually sees hundreds of celebrity guests party at his house in Hampstead, north London.
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.
The TV presenter’s daughter Betty, 30, previously shared the news about her diagnosis on Instagram, writing: “Fibromyalgia? I hardly know her.
“This is me letting y’all know I got a Fibromyalgia diagnosis. Shout out to the four people who all said they thought I had fibro, turns out y’all were right.
“There’s always a lot of weird feelings that come with a new diagnosis, but this one overall feels like a relief. It feels like my pain being acknowledged, and that with this diagnosis I can better find ways of managing my pain.”
Ross has two other children with his wife, the screenwriter Jane Goldman: a son Harvey, 27, and a daughter Honey, 24.
