Talking about Anne Diamond’s relationship, she began an affair with Mike in the mid-1980s while he was still married to his first wife. Following the birth of their second child, they married in 1989 and went on to have three more children together. However, Sebastian, their third child, died when he was three months old. Later, Diamond and Hollingsworth divorced in 1999 after separating in 1998 due to his numerous relationships.

After her third son, Sebastian, died from Sudden Infant Death illness (SIDS) – often known as cot death – in 1991, Diamond became interested in raising awareness of the illness. She was the spokesperson for the Back to Sleep campaign, which encouraged parents to ensure that their children slept on their backs. Since then, the number of SIDS incidents in the UK has decreased significantly, from over 2,000 per year to around 300, which has been ascribed to the campaign. Diamond was the first non-medical person to receive the Gold Medal from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
