Veteran British entertainer Dame Julie Andrews is still struggling to cope with the loss of her husband Blake Edwards, five years after his death.

The Pink Panther creator passed away in 2010 at the age of 88 after suffering complications from pneumonia, and Andrews, who was married to Edwards for 41 years, admits she is still not over the tragedy.

In an emotional interview on U.K. Tv show Good Morning Britain, Andrews says, "I'm still dealing with it... There are days when it's perfectly wonderful and I am myself and then it's suddenly - sock you in the middle of your gut and you think 'Ah God I wish he were here'. But he is in a way, I think one carries that love always... We were married 41 years and it was a love story, it was."
