THIS is the bombshell moment Tanya Roberts' husband learned the Bond Girl was still alive during a sensational TV interview.
On Sunday, it was reported that Tanya – who starred in 'A View to a Kill' with Roger Moore in 1985 – had been rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after collapsing at home on Christmas Eve.
Her partner Lance O'Brien told TMZ that he visited her on Saturday in hospital before she passed away.
Tanya's publicist Mike Pingel then released a statement on Sunday confirming her death.
But in a baffling turn of events, Lance received a sensational phone call from doctors yesterday.
That call, received during a filmed interview with Inside Edition, confirmed the actress was still ALIVE.
A video clip shows Lance's shocked face as he says: "Now, you are telling me she's alive?"
He starts to cry before telling the interviewer: "The hospital is telling me she is alive. They are calling me from the ICU team."
This comes as a dumbfounded Lance told The Sun exclusively: “She’s still with us, but not for long.”
Lance said an emotional farewell to his wife of nearly two decades on Sunday after she fell ill over Christmas and was admitted to Cedars Sinai hospital.
He said Tanya has an unspecified illness which medics told him began with a urinary tract infection. He insists she does not have Covid.
However, Lance appeared to claim on Sunday that he watched his wife's "last moments".
At the time, he said: "As I held her in her last moments, she opened her eyes.
"I was able to see her beautiful eyes one last time. Tanya had the most beautiful eyes."
When asked directly about the alleged mix-up, a spokesperson for Cedars Sinai told The Sun: “Due to patient confidentiality we cannot confirm or deny that anyone is a patient at Cedars Sinai.”
Lance said he “didn’t know” who to blame for the mistake.
He said: “If I point the finger, there’ll be three pointing back.
“I don’t know who to blame. I blame this pandemic for a lot of it."
At the weekend, Tanya's publicist Mike said she had been placed on a ventilator but "never got better."
He also insisted her "death" was not related to the coronavirus.
Yet, insiders told TMZ that the actress appeared "perfectly healthy" and was taking part in video chats with fans before he collapse.
Fighting back tears, Lance said he cannot return to the hospital to say another goodbye as he wishes for his wife to die with dignity.
He says he does not want her to be kept on life support just so he can get special treatment to see her.
"Today the doctors told me that it’s best to let her die and to end her life," he said.
“She’ll never be the same again, the tubes she has in her are very uncomfortable.
“Her kidneys are so far gone, her liver is so far gone, her gall bladder is so far gone.
“She also has a terrible blood infection. The doctors say it started out with a urinary tract infection.
“The doctors say there’s no way she’s going to be the same. She always told me she didn't want to be an invalid.
“She said if it got to this stage, end it for me. It’s a challenge and a half, I’ve got to tell you.
“I can’t go into the hospital again, I’d have to get special permission.
“I’ve already been able to look deeply into her eyes and they said they want to give her dignity on checking out."
Tanya's first big break came in 1980 when she appeared in the fifth and final season of legendary TV show Charlie's Angels.
The actress also starred in hit sitcom That 70s Show alongside Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Topher Grace.
