"Still in shock & still no words - my beautiful Dani is an indescribable loss.

"Nothing can be said or done but I need to acknowledge the immense amount of love, kindness & support that Bowie, Dan's family, my family & I have received. It has overwhelmed us.

"In this darkest of times, it is extremely difficult to feel anything other than sadness, let alone gratitude, but we have found glimpses of feeling that union of love that has come from far & wide for our Dani.

"She was the best of the best, and that is testament to her. Thank you."

He also posted a picture of Hampson holding their son Bowie who was wrapped up in a onesie.

Mann and Hampson announced their engagement in December 2019 and their son was born in October last year.

Mann was part of the English-Irish boyband Stereo Kicks on the 2014 series of singing competition The X Factor.

The band split up in 2015.
