Former ‘X-Factor’ Contestant Tom Mann Reveals His Fiancée Dies on Their Wedding Day

“On what was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak.”

Former ‘X-Factor’ singer Tom Mann, 28, announced on his Instagram account the sudden death of his fiancée, who died just hours before their wedding.

According to the singer’s heartbreaking message, his fiancée, Dani Hampson, passed away early Saturday morning.

“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,” heartbroken Tom wrote on Instagram on Monday.

“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 [altar]; 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,” he added.

Tom promised that he will wear his wedding ring as a sign of his unconditional love for Dani.

“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,” Tom continued.

Tom then called Dani the “most beautiful person inside and out” as well as 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. My darling Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever,” he concluded.

“Tom auditioned as a solo singer for ‘X Factor’ back in 2014, but producers created the group, Stereo Kicks, of which he was a member,” TMZ reported, “Dani Hampson, a 34-year-old publicist, had no apparent health issues and the cause of her death has not been revealed.”

Tributes have poured in for Dani after Tom announced she had died.

The Spice Girls shared an image of Hampson during the Spiceworld 2019 tour.

Simon Cowell, who served as a judge during Tom’s time on the show, told TMZ, “As a father myself, I simply cannot imagine the heartbreak Tom and his family are going through and will be personally reaching out to him. From my family to his, we extend our deepest condolences and all of our love during this tragic time.”
