X Factor star Tom Mann has been left heartbroken following the tragic death of his fiancée Dani Hampson.
Tom – who was part of the band Stereo Kicks on the ITV show – revealed the mother of his eighth month old son had died on the morning of what should have been their wedding.
In a devastating post, he revealed: “I can’t believe I am writing these words but my darling Dani – my best friend, my everything and more, the love of my life – passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning, 18th June.
“On what was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak.
“I feel like I have cried an ocean. We never made it to the alter; or got to say our vows, or dance our first dance, but I know you know that you were my entire world and the best thing that has ever happened to me, Danielle.
“I will wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you.”
He continued, saying how he planned to raise their son alone in her memory: “I am completely broken trying to process this and I honestly don’t know where to go from here, but I do know I need to use any strength I can muster for our little boy.
