TRAGIC Beth Chapman’s final days battling cancer will be revealed in Dog The Bounty Hunter’s new show.
The 51-year-old died yesterday in a Hawaii hospital following an 18-month fight with throat and lung cancer.
Husband Dog – real name Duane Chapman – broke the devastating news on Twitter, with his new show revealing tender moments between him and his wife in her final days.
Dog’s Most Wanted – airing on US channel WGN – will see the bounty hunter continuing to chase down convicts.
Touching scenes in the trailer show Beth stood by her husband of 12 years as he discusses her illness.
He says: “My wife, the love of my life is fighting for her life, and instead of being at home helping her, I’m out here looking for you.”
Dog adds: “So I’m warning you, in advance, may God have mercy on you when I catch you… because I won’t.”
Poignant shots show Beth’s hospital bed and a close up photo of the couple – before Dog is seen leaning in for a tender kiss.
The release date has not yet been announced as some scenes were still being shot when Beth passed away.
It’s understood it will be Dog’s decision on whether there’s enough footage to end the series.
Dog announced Beth had died as he revealed his heartbreaking last moments with his wife, who had been rushed to hospital after a choking incident.
He said: “When she had an attack I didn’t know anything to do but to say ‘in Jesus’ name’ and hold her and when I said ‘in Jesus’ name’ she said, ‘Say it again, say it more’.
“And then she, you know, she told the girls and everybody with her mouth and stuff she said I love you guys, are you guys all okay? But she never accepted it.”
Her daughter Bonnie Chapman, 20, led tributes in a series of tweets – starting off by writing: “Love you forever mom. You’ve got a halo now.”
She continued: “I’ll never forget you, mama. You were such a strong woman, and you taught me to always be strong. You were strong for everyone, and you taught me it’s okay to let go.
“I’d never thought I’d lose my mom at 20. I told her I thought she had a couple years left, but in her eyes she disagreed.”
Beth had undergone a number of hospital admissions in recent months, and earlier this week was placed in a medically induced coma.
She was first diagnosed with stage two throat cancer in November 2017 and later developed stage-four lung cancer.
Duane shot to fame in 2004 with Dog The Bounty Hunter, a reality series chronicling his experiences locating and arresting people who had breached their bail agreements.
The show was an instant hit, with viewers drawn in by Chapman’s street smarts, his team, and his attempts to rehabilitate and counsel the people he was able to track down.
The show ended in 2012 after eight seasons and was replaced in 2013 by Dog and Beth: On The Hunt, a spin-off series starring both Duane and Beth.
The couple tied the knot in 2006 and became great-grandparents earlier this year.
She was last seen in public celebrating Palm Sunday over the Easter Weekend in April, and shared a smiling photo of herself dolled up for the occasion on Instagram.
