She replied: “I think it will be for pancakes because that’s a fairly regular weekend thing.”
On October 11, 2023, Cal Wilson, one of the most well-known comedians in Australia, tragically passed away at the age of 53.
The details about Cal’s husband Chris Woods and their son Digby, whom she left behind, are as follows.
Who is Cal Wilson’s husband Chris Woods?
Cal Wilson, the late comedian and host of The Great Australian Bake Off, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, October 11, 2023. Cal’s spouse is Chris Woods.
Chris dated Cal for four years before to their 2008 wedding, and despite having a well-known wife, he has mostly avoided the spotlight.
After meeting at a Northcote, Melbourne, bar, the couple has been together for over 20 years.
When asked about the meeting Cal said: “I overheard Chris say he was heading overseas in five weeks and I thought, ‘He could be a great fling,’ and 20 years later we are still together”.
The Great Australian Bake Off host described her husband as a “kind human and a “man of his word” and said he expressed his love by filling her car up with petrol when she was stressed.
Has Chris Woods said anything about his wife Cal Wilson’s death?
Although her management team has sent out a meaningful note, Chris has not publicly spoken on his wife’s loss.
The tribute reads: “We are devastated to share the news that Cal Wilson, the much-loved stand-up comedian, writer and actor died today, surrounded by family and friends after a short illness at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney.
“Cal’s generosity, talent and friendship have been constants in the Australian comedy scene for the last twenty years.
“Cal was loved by her family, friends, fans and peers and a huge hole has been torn in the heart of our community.
“Cal is survived by her husband Chris and son Digby.
“The family are asking for privacy at this time.”
Who is Cal Wilson’s son Digby?
Digby, who will turn 14 in October 2023, doesn’t seem to be as camera shy as his father because he has been seen with his mother at a number of red carpet events.
Digby loves to cook, and just a few months before she passed away, Cal revealed in a heartfelt interview that she hoped her son would remember their weekends spent together cooking pancakes.
They had an unshakable bond, she added, and they would spend hours upon hours together in the kitchen.
On Adam Miller’s Bakeology podcast, the comic was asked what she thought Digby would remember her for.
