‘She was truly my earth angel. I have dreaded this day for as long as I can remember and still can’t comprehend this is my new reality.
‘I don’t know why this happened the night before I turned 25 and maybe I’ll never know but all I know is that I am the luckiest girl in the whole world to have been able to know the most incredible woman for 25 years.
‘I feel lost and broken but I know she is with me forever, she always has been.’

He and Nicola announced their engagement in July 2019 after dating for nine months.
