Former The X Factor star Tom Mann has announced the devastating news that his fiancée Dani Hampson has died.

The singer, who rose to fame on the ITV show in 2014 as part of boyband Stereo Kicks, took to Instagram to announce the heartbreaking news on Monday 20 June.

Tom shared that Dani had passed away in the early hours of Saturday 18 June, on what should have been their wedding day.

Sharing a black-and-white snap of Dani with their eight-month-old son, Bowie, Tom wrote: "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.

"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.

"I will not be a mark on the parent that you had already become but I promise I will do my everything to raise Bowie just the way we always wanted. I promise you he will know how amazing his mummy was. I promise to make you so so proud.

"The most beautiful person inside and out. The most incredible soul. We have lost such a special person and I am sure we are about to see an abundant outpouring of love that reflects that. I will try to find peace in your messages and comments, but right now I am grieving and I will be for a very, very long time."

Tom ended his tribute to his late wife-to-be, writing: "My darling Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever."

A host of Tom's celebrity friends flooded the comments section with their condolences, with Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi writing: "Love you brother", with a red love heart.
