Former child star Gary Coleman’s ex-wife said today that before his recent death they had planned to renew their marital vows.

Shannon Price told the Good Morning America programme she had ordered Coleman be taken off of life support on the advice of his doctors. The actor died on May 28 in Utah aged 42 after suffering a brain haemorrhage two days earlier.

Price said she found him lying in a pool of blood in their kitchen after hearing what she called “a big smack”.

The couple divorced in 2008, but Price said they later agreed that divorce “wasn’t the right choice”.

Coleman starred for eight seasons in the sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes” starting in 1978, when he was 10.
