X-Factor singer Tom Mann ‘still in shock’ over fiancée’s death
X-Factor star Tom Mann has broken his silence nearly three weeks after the death of his fiancee, which was to be the couple’s wedding day.
Days after his death on June 18, Mann announced on social media that his future wife Danielle Hampson had died leaving him “completely broken.”
In an Instagram post on Thursday, Mann said he needed to acknowledge the outpouring of love and support he received after his death.
Sharing a photo of him kissing her on the cheek, Mann said: “Almost three weeks into what will always be the worst day of my life.
“Still in shock and still no words – my beautiful Dani is an indescribable loss.
“Nothing can be said or done, but I must acknowledge the overwhelming amount of love, kindness and support that Bowie, Dan’s family, my family and I have received. It has overwhelmed us.
“In these darkest 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 a long way for our Dani.
“She was the best of the best, and that’s a testament to that. Thanks.”
He also posted a photo of Hampson holding their son Bowie who was wrapped in a cozy jumpsuit.
Mann and Hampson announced their engagement in December 2019 and their son was born in October last year.
Mann rose to prominence as a member of the British-Irish boy band Stereo Kicks during the 2014 series of singing competitions The X Factor.
The band broke up in 2015.
