Former X Factor contestant and member of Stereo Kicks Tom Mann, 28, has shared the tragic news that his fiancée passed away the day of their wedding.

Mann competed on the reality show in 2014 with his band Stereo Kicks, who finished in 5th place. Since then, the singer has worked as a producer and songwriter for other musicians. However, he recently shared on Instagram that his fiancée and mother of his eight-month-old son, Danielle Hampson, passed away on June 18th, the day of their wedding.

"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," he shared.

"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," Mann wrote.

"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," he continued.

"My darling Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever."

Messages of support for Mann and Hampson's family came pouring in.

Musician Lewis Capaldi left a comment reading "Love you brother," while singer Ellie Goulding also commented, writing, "I'm thinking of you non stop... You are so strong. Here for you always. Love you."

The Spice Girls paid tribute in a tweet as well.

"We were very saddened to hear of the passing of Dani Hampson who was part of the Spiceworld 2019 family. Sending love and strength to Tom, Bowie and Dani’s family and friends," they wrote.

Danielle was 34.

Mann and his fiancée began dating in 2015 and became engaged in 2019. The cause of death is still unknown.

Our thoughts are with Danielle's family, friends, and loved ones at this difficult time.
