X Factor star’s fiancée’s family break silence

The family of Dani Hampson have paid tribute to their daughter and sister after her sudden death on the day she was meant to marry X Factor star Tom Mann.

Mum-of-one Hampson, 34, had been due to marry former Stereo Kicks star Mann on Saturday, June 18, but died in the early hours of the morning.

Her heartbroken fiance broke the news on Monday with a devastating tribute on social media, saying that while they never married he will ‘wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you.’

The couple share an eight-month-old son, Bowie.

Now Hampson’s father and siblings have shared their devastation at losing the ‘beating heart’ of their family.

Her father, Martin, took to social media where he paid tribute to the ‘loving, successful, intelligent daughter who always put everybody before herself, and as a result was loved by everyone.’

He wrote:’She will always be my little princess, the love of mums life, the sister Andy adored, Helenas BFF, Tom’s true love, and of course Bowies amazing mummy (sic).’

‘We are all devastated and utterly heartbroken,’ he went on. ‘People say the hurt will ease in time, but as it stands we are broken.’

‘Danielle, we will love you forever. Sleep tight sweetheart, sleep tight.’

Her brother, Andy, shared a sweet black-and-white snap of him and his sister on a night out and said he wanted to take the opportunity ‘to express just what Danielle meant to me and the void she is going to leave in all our lives.’

‘For as long as I can remember Danielle has been my best friend. I took great pleasure in taking the mick out of her at every opportunity and she reciprocated, but the love we had for each other was immeasurable.’

He recalled how they got on ‘perfectly’ aside from the ‘very occasional brother and sister tiff,’ and said she filled him with ‘so much pride it made me want to burst.’

Andy went on to promise his sister that ‘the world will know just what an extraordinary human being Bowie’s mum was.’

‘The outpouring of love we have already witnessed is a testament to the wonderful person you were,’ he added.

‘I wish we could have just one last hug, drink, laugh together and I could have the opportunity to tell you, you were everything to me.

‘I will love you forever, my beautiful sister.’

Hampson’s sister-in-law, Helena Smith, also shared a gorgeous black-and-white snap of the pair together, and wrote that she would ‘love and miss [her] forever.’

She had ‘so much life left to live with both Tom and Bowie,’ Smith penned on Instagram.
