X Factor star Tom Mann had to push back his wedding to Danielle Hampson two times over the past few years because of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, his fiancée tragically died in the early hours of June 18, the day after they were due to finally tie the knot, which was the third time they had planned to have their wedding.
The 28-year-old, who competed in the singing competition with Stereo Kicks back in 2014, shared the devastating news of the Spice Girls' dancers passing in a post on Monday.

Tom's sister Helena shared a heartfelt tribute to Dani on her Instagram where she told her followers the 34-year-old had "so much life left to live".
Addressing the devastation of her death, Helena said her sister-in-law had waited "so patiently" for her special day and after two postponed dates it was finally here.
She wrote: "I never thought I would write this post. My beautiful, big sister-in-law passed away on the 18th June 2022, in the early hours of what should have been the morning after her wedding day.
"34 years old, ready to get married to an amazing husband to be with her 8-month-old son. So much life left to live with both Tom and Bowie."
Helena continued: "Danielle, Tom, Andy and I had something so special. We were so close, we made so many memories. I always felt so lucky I had that kind of relationship. Not many people do.
"She waited so patiently for her special day, 2 postponed dates later, it was finally here. The 18th was my birthday, and even though it should have been all about her, she still made plans around her own wedding weekend to celebrate me too.
"I can never thank her enough for her selflessness and always, always putting other people first, even when she didn’t have to. This day will forever now be a celebration of you."
Tom's sister continued to say she looked up to Dani the moment they met and referred to her as a best friend and the big sister she never had.
In the tribute, she promised to always be there for her nephew Bowie as she concluded the post by saying "Love you and miss you forever."
First announcing the tragic news on his Instagram, Tom said it felt as though he had cried an ocean and despite not making it down the aisle will wear his wedding ring as a sign of his unconditional love.

Captioning a black and white photo of Dani smiling and holding their son, Tom wrote: "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.
"I will wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you.
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."
