Former X-Factor contestant Tom Mann‘s fiancée Danielle Hampson died on their wedding day on June 18. Tom, 28, shared the heartbreaking news about Danielle, a 34-year-old publicist and dancer, in an Instagram post, though he didn’t disclose the reason for demise. Alongside a black-and-white symbol of Danielle with the couple’s child son Bowie, Tom wrote out an emotional tribute to his overdue fiancée.
“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,” Tom wrote. “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.”
The British musician promised that he’s going to put on his marriage ceremony ring “as a sign of unconditional love” to Danielle. “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,” the daddy of 1 added. “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,” Tom stated about Danielle, whose ultimate dancing efficiency was once within the tune video for Harry Styles‘ tune “Treat People With Kindness.” Tom endured, “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. My darling Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever.”
Fellow musicians like Emma Bunton of the Spice Girls, Lewis Capaldi, Ellie Goulding, and Tom’s former Stereo Kicks bandmate Barclay Beales all presented their condolences to Tom. Tom was once intended to marry Danielle in 2020, however they had been pressured to lengthen their marriage ceremony by way of two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
