A couple’s wedding day is intended to be one of the most memorable of their lives. However tragically, for X-Factor star Tom Mann, that day will go down as one of the most crushing of his life. Saturday, June 18th was set to be the TV star and his fiancée Dani Hampson’s wedding date. Sadly though, according to ET, Hampson died that same day at just 34 years old.

As per the outlet, details regarding the publicist’s cause of death are uncertain, with Fox 8 suggesting it may have been due to a car crash. Amid the news, the X-Factor star took to social media to mourn his loss.

Sharing a black and white photo of his partner, Mann said, “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 morning hours of Saturday morning, 18th June.”
