X Factor star Tom Mann was left heartbroken after his fiancée Dani tragically died on the morning of their wedding day.
The 28-year-old, who appeared with his band Stereo Kicks on the ITV talent show back in 2014, declared the devastating news on social media on Monday (June 20).
He took to Instagram to update his loyal legion of fans with a picture of his partner and their eight-month-old son in her arms.
The doting dad wrote a lengthy post dedicated to the “love of his life” on what should have been the happiest day of their lives.
The singer vowed to continue to wear his engagement ring as a “sign of [his] unconditional love” for her as he now raises their son as a single dad.
He went on to declare that the blonde beauty was the “best thing to have ever happened” to him and hopes to make her proud as he watched his son grow.
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 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.”
