Posting on Sunday April 25 the dancer shared a sweet collage of photos with her father Andy and other family members, writing in the caption:"With sadness and a heavy heart my father George Andrew Rich fondly known as Andy, has passed away suddenly. My heart goes out to his wife Liz the love of his life who was with him for over 40 years and to all who knew him."
Struggling for words she continued: "It’s hard to find the right words at this moment, my father lost two sons in his lifetime and I hope you can all find each other in the after life. So many things left unsaid, RIP Dad you will be missed but not forgotten. #Dad"
Adding the dates to the collage, she wrote her father's name and 1937-2021, before including each picture in full size in the swipe along of images. Such gorgeous happy memories.
Fellow Strictly star Neil Jones commented his regards writing: "I'm sorry to hear. Sending my love." While presenter Claudia Winkleman added: " I'm so sorry. Sending you so much love xxx."
Sending best wishes to Shirley at this most difficult time, and to all of those experiencing the pain of a loss.
