In a new interview with Out & Home puts the 48-year-old TV2-host words on the grief that still fills much of the day today. Here she tells how she got the terrible message that her little brother was dead.
It was implemented horribly. I can remember that I came home from Journalisthøjskolen the day and played my answering machine, and so was the message from my mother. Whew... She had opened the door for the police, and then there was just exploded a bomb in the head on her. So she was in shock and thought, of course, not about how it worked, I got to know on an answering machine, says Cecilie Beck in the interview.
Just the way, the tragic message was delivered to the then 23-year-old Cecilie Beck, has made a deep impression on her.
- There went a couple of years then, when I got it bad, when the phone rang. It was a time of a state of emergency in the family and the worst period of my life, says Cecilie Beck.

While it is many years ago that the seasoned host lost his younger brother, filling up the grief is still very much with Cecilie Beck. Especially in connection with holidays, missing her little brother.
- We have just been along to the christmas atmosphere, there is a lack of he just. Even though it is so many years ago, it may be felt that he is not there, when we are all together. I have two other siblings, and we were used to be a bunch of four. Suddenly one is only three. It makes da damn evil, and I always think immediately of the families, when I hear about an accident. For I know exactly how awful it is to get the message, and how it is to live with the grief, she says, for the Outside & at Home.
