However, 2020 was a tough one to combat Brian's wife; it was a year where millions of people were drowning amidst the scary pandemic, Covid-19. 

On top of that, Brian's wife was undergoing the horrors of cancer at the time. Unfortunately, she hadn't fully recovered from the fatal, and she caught Covid-19.  

Moreover, the coronavirus also weakened her heart, which added risk to her health condition. Naturally, this aroused a lot of stress in the family.

Brian and his spouse were at their lowest during that time. However, they kept immense faith and confidence in themselves.

The chances were low, but the hopes were set high, and finally, their hope rose the trophy of victory as Neil beat cancer and Covid. To this, Brian lit up with joy and shared,

My wife, Hildegarde Neil. She had cancer at the beginning of the year, and she had gone into recession, she beat that, then she got Covid, then beat Covid.

He added,

"Then, after that, it weakened her heart, and she has mastered that. She is out shopping now, and she is walking the dog, and she is 81. No, for god's sake, we are going to make it. This Covid will pass on, and it will die."

Brian constantly kept showering his wife with praisings for combating her health crisis. Since then, the couple has never undergone anything severe, and they have been leading a life piled up with glee and laughter.

Also, he is a barrel of laughs who never fails to flaunt a smile on anyone's face with his humorous yet to-the-point answers. To the rumors of him being identified as gay, he replied with,
